Replay becomes Play Expo, Dates + Venue for 2012 confirmed
Yesterday, subscribers to the Replay Gamer newsletter received exclusive news about our 2012 Expo.
Here's an extract from the newsletter:
"BIG NEWS! We can finally announce the dates, location and new name for our main expo in 2012. We are very pleased to reveal that the show formerly known as Replay will now be called Play Expo.
Whilst we are of course sad to move away from Blackpool, we have outgrown our previous venue and simply couldn't find a suitable nearby alternative that was available during our required timeframe.
EventCity was chosen as it has the space, access and facilities that we need, whilst also offering a number of benefits to attendees such as a more central location, good rail and motorway links and up to 3000 free car parking spaces (with plenty more available within the Trafford Centre itself). The new venue also gives us lots more space for more games, consoles, computers, arcade and pinball machines, tournaments, entertainment and plenty of other features.
We are also giving you the opportunity to provide input into the show by taking some time to answer our questionnaire. Everyone who participates will be entered into our draw for a pair of Play Expo tickets and an exclusive brochure from the recent BAFTA Video Games Awards!"
