Play Expo video games expo returning to EventCity, Manchester

playexpo-logoPlay Expo is set to return to EventCity, Manchester on 12-13 October 2013 after a hugely successful debut last year and Nintendo have signed up as the first exhibitor for the area. 

Play Expo will expand considerably on last year’s show and will once again feature four distinct events:

  • (retro systems and arcade/pinball machines)
  • (previews of the latest games and hardware)
  • (casual and competitive tournaments)
  • (costume competitions and dealers/traders).

Replay Events Ltd announced Nintendo as the first major exhibitor the event.

Andy Brown, Director at Replay Events said:

“Nintendo have been exhibitors at our shows for the past four years so naturally we are delighted they are continuing their support for Play Expo.”

“Our show last year saw one of the UKs first ‘hands on’ displays of the Wii U console and I’m sure Nintendo will be bringing some highly anticipated titles to our 2013 expo.”

More detail on the specific titles that Nintendo will be showcasing will be announced in the coming weeks.

Speaking about the expo, Andy also stated:

“This year’s show is already shaping up to be our biggest and best yet with demand for tickets more than double that of previous years.”

“We will be releasing more information on other exciting exhibitors at Play Expo 2013 very soon.
