For this , check out your nearest travel agent or fav online booking site. Who knows, Air Asia might be flying to Brisbane by then.[ap]

Interesting. I might have a project that'll swing over Brisbane and around that time (Jun-Aug) except i) we've not got the project officially, and ii) my July trip may not coincide with the GenCon date. But then again, let's keep fingers crossed. [;)]



GenCon in Ozz is certainly more affordable than Essen. And if you are looking for gaming experience - ie play play play play play play - GenCon is a better one to drop in to.

Drat! Wrong timing. I've been planning a Gold Coast trip next Aug/Sep with the family. Now all I have to do is figure out how to swing 2 Ozzie trips in 1 year. [hmmhmm]
