The Nerd Fu Crew and The Intern are gearing up to head up to Austin, Texas this Friday for the craziness that is RTX 2016! Fans have already made short work of the 3-day VIP pass as it’s currently sold out, but you can still grab single day passes as well as the non-VIP weekend pass. We’ll be covering all the madness we can breathe in while we were there. We’re also looking forward to seeing friendly faces we’ve met since last year! If you are or were able to score tickets, then consider it game on and look for the Nerd Fu shirts and be sure to say hi.
Austin-based Rooster Teeth has driven this party since it’s humble beginnings in 2011 where they had only a few exhibitors and around 600 attendees. Ready to hear numbers for 2015? Pause your game and check this out:
- 95 exhibitors
- 40,000 attendees
- 68,000 pieces of merch sold
- 227,000 sq.ft. of space is used to hold RTX – which included the convention center itself plus 2 hotels
