Default Play Expo – Manchester - 13-14th October 2012

Apologies if this is not posted in the correct forum - please feel free to move it if you think it would be better in another one. Also, I have had permission from Kestrel to post this...

Play Expo takes place at Manchester’s EventCity on 13-14th October and is the UK’s newest large-scale Gaming Expo, offering gamers the unique opportunity to experience all aspects of the hobby under one massive roof. The Expo is essentially four events in one:

now.play is a showcase of the latest games and innovations from some of the biggest names in the industry, including Nintendo, EA, Konami and Namco Bandai.

pro.play is a dedicated area for competitive multiplayer gaming. Our partners from the EGL will be running tournaments on the likes of FIFA, Call of Duty and Super Street Fighter IV, with cash prizes to be won.

re.play celebrates the history of gaming with over 300 classic consoles, home computers, arcade and pinball machines. Everything from Pong to the PS3 will be available for visitors to play, with special themed areas, competitions, giveaways and much more.

cos.play is a dedicated area focussing on Cosplay, Anime and Japanese Gaming culture, with masquerades, skits and contests throughout the weekend.


We want Play Expo to be the ultimate celebration of gaming and believe it is the ideal opportunity for online communities to meet 'in real life' in an environment perfectly suited to their hobby! With plenty of hotels, shops and nightlife nearby and excellent transport links, Manchester is the perfect location for the Expo and for community meets.

If any members of this forum are interested in coming to the event, we can offer a special package for your community, including a designated meeting place at the event, a 'team photo', lanyards and passes and discounted tickets for group purchases.

If you’re attending the event, please share the fact by adding the following BBCode to your forum signature:
