Brighton, England, 3rd March 2010. Eurogamer Network, Europe's leading independent games media specialist, is thrilled to announce that Eurogamer Expo 2010 will open to the public on 1st to 3rd October in the Brompton Hall of Earls Court, London.
Building upon the winning format of the enormously successful 2009 event, this year's Expo will be the only consumer event offering British gamers the chance to go hands-on with the biggest games of this year and the next.
With over 20,000 consumers attending, the event is perfectly positioned at the very start of the key Q4 release window, representing a huge sampling opportunity for consumers to trial the best of the Christmas releases.
"Earls Court is another step up for the Eurogamer Expo," commented Rupert Loman, Managing Director of Eurogamer Network. "Our 2009 event was a sell-out in advance of the show and while our philosophy continues to revolve around sustainable and organic growth, moving to abigger venue with all the facilities it has to offer allows us to put on a fantastic event for even more gamers.”
David Lilley, Eurogamer Expo Event Director, added: "In addition to masses of playable games, this year's Eurogamer Expo will deliver an even wider range of other attractions. It's our intention to provide a full day's entertainment to this key group of opinion formers and gaming advocates."
All of the most popular aspects of the 2009 event will return including the jam-packed developer sessions, the curiosity shop that is the Indie Arcade and the popular GamesIndustry.biz Career Fair, in addition to a series of new areas and events which will be announced over the coming months.
