Community meetups are one of the best parts of going to a convention. Going to see old friends and the opportunity to make new ones. With PAX Australia and Armageddon NZ just on the horizon, we’ve compiled a list of events recommended to us by the community!
We’ll be updating this list as more events get announced over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out on The Influence Twitter profile for updates!
