About Nine Worlds 2014

Nine Worlds 2014 ran from the 8th to the 10th of August at the Radisson Blu Heathrow, near London, with 330 sessions in 30 tracks over three days. The hotel was packed with attendees enjoying three days of parties, panels, talks, concerts, demonstrations, games, swordplay classes, tastings, workshops and competitions. To find out what people thought, we put together a feedback report. There are also many reports from elsewhere that we've gathered in one place for information:
