For starters, here's the initial release:
As lots of people from RG forum evidently managed to miss each other at last year's show, we're going to pre-print a load of simple name-badge stickers.Replay Expo 2011 - Hit gaming event returns to Blackpool this November
Replay Expo is the unique video gaming event that prides itself in celebrating both the classics as well as the very latest titles. Following the success of last year’s debut show, Replay Expo will return to the Norbreck Castle Exhibition Centre in Blackpool on the 5/6 November 2011; the final weekend of the famous Illuminations.
This year’s event will expand into additional halls, meaning 5000+ gamers will have access to even more arcade machines, pinball tables, consoles and home computers.
In keeping with the inaugural event there will be an equal emphasis on families as well as hardcore gamers: an increase in the number of junior tournaments throughout the weekend will ensure there is something for everyone, young and old.
Attendance from Nintendo, Sony, Sega and other household names from the gaming world helped draw in the crowds last year and visitors can once again expect good support from the games industry.
The charity partner for this year’s Expo is GamesAid: an organisation created by the UK video game industry to distribute funds amongst a diverse range of charities.
Tickets for Replay Expo 2011 will shortly be available to buy online from www.replayexpo.com.
So if you think it's likely you'll be coming to Blackpool, please say so in this thread. Ta!
We'll also try and do things like establish a couple of pre-determined meeting points each day e.g. everybody from the RG forum could meet at the stage at a certain time, for a group photo etc.
