Returning for its fourth year is the North’s biggest gaming show PLAY Expo. The show will take place at its usual home of the impressive EventCity, Manchester on 10th and 11th October 2015.
Last year over 19,000 people walked through the doors to enter this immensely successful event, with hundreds of screens of next-gen, indie and retro games as well as eSports, cosplay and stars of film and TV.
Andy Brown (Replay Events Director) said “PLAY Expo 2014 was a huge leap forward for us in terms of scale and ambition but we delivered a knockout show that our attendees absolutely loved. The bar has been set very high for PLAY Expo this year, but we already have plans underway to smash all previous records out of the water.
Show features we introduced last year such as celebrity signings, our careers fair and Youtuber meet and greets will be expanded plus we are adding even more new content for 2015 including an area dedicated to the immensely popular Minecraft, where we will be running a Hunger Games tournament and a creative build server. Of course this won’t be at the expense of any of the other parts of the show – we know how passionate our attendees are about all aspects of PLAY Expo.
We pride ourselves on being the most diverse gaming expo in the UK – where else can you see so many of the latest games and technologies alongside arcades, pinballs, retro consoles and computers? The response we get from the gaming community is overwhelming, we’re immensely proud of what the show has become and we look forward to delivering yet another phenomenal event to our audience and partners this October.”
PLAY Expo 2015 will be featuring the UK’s largest arcade and pinball display, industry speakers, movie props and vehicles, card and board games, merchandise plus a host of other features. More announcements will be made in the coming months so keep your eyes open here at Flickering Myth for these updates. Further information and tickets are available from www.playexpo.net.
