InfiniteSims helps gather a few more links that I missed to various fansites that attended the Sims 3 Producer event.

For Spanish visitors, fansite Capital Sims published their report of their time at the event along with photos they snapped.  SimSolucion has a writeup as well, so visit their site to see what they say!

Dutch site SimParool brings you some more pictures as well as a new video below.
