EliteMeet 2017 Bristol

A community event for the Elite Dangerous players and fans, come and meet like minded people.

In the main hall we will have Oculus Rift (CV1’s) and Vive virtual reality experiences for you to try out.  There will also be a number of commanders own gaming stations with Elite:Dangerous and other games for you to try out. To help commanders break the ice there will be many other social games to try. These will include modern card and board games for you to enjoy. Or if you wish you can just sit and chat with other commanders over lunch or a beer.

You are also encouraged to bring your own PC kit should you want to demo hardware or games. Also if you have a board/card game you’d love to play please do bring them along.

As always we are supporting our two chosen charities at this event Special Effect and Hearing Dogs. Any surplus funds following the event will be divided up and donated to these two charities. Check out our About Page for more information on and links to these charities.
