The Intergalactic Aerospace Expo 2950 is a 13 day ship exposition event held at Tobin Expo Center in New Babbage. The expo is an annual event that brings ships of all different manufacturers together to be displayed at several expo halls.[1]

Each 24 hours, a new manufacturer opens up their halls to display their ships. Manufacturers display their ships for 48 hours. Any ship displayed is available to rent and fly for free for a period of 48 [2] hours.

As in previous years, Jax McCleary was present at the event providing detailed coverage with his Whitley's Guide videos.[1]

Stock limited sale schedule

The event also featured sales of stock limited ships on the Pledge Store. These ships are considered 'exclusive' and are therefore only sold in limited quantities over a small period of time. Each stock-limited ship is limited to 1 per account and will be available in three waves:

  • Wave 1: 16:00 UTC
  • Wave 2: 00:00 UTC
  • Wave 3: 08:00 UTC

Launch day issues

At the same moment of the launch of the IAE (nov 20, 1600 UTC), the RSI website experienced a high amount of errors and people were unable to access the website, Pledge Store, or Spectrum in the first hour. Login services were also disrupted so people couldn't log into the launcher and start the game. People already in the game were unaffected. [3]The issue was mostly resolved within a few hours.

Showcase schedule

Showcases were available at Tobin Expo center, where they rotated different ship brands each several days. All of the ships on display on these days were also available to fly for free during a period of 48 hours.[1][4]
