Over 40 indies braced for first London Gaming Market

A market dedicated to selling retro games and merchandise takes place this weekend, and the organisers expect it to give a huge boost to retailers.

London Gaming Market is set for Sunday, November 15th at the Royal National Hotel in Russell Square, London, and will return on April 3rd, 2016, too. More than 40 retailers have signed up to exhibit.

Organiser Andy Brown says that although he’s not expecting Comic Con-sized attendance, he anticipates it will be a more lucrative event for stores.

We are offering a single day shopping experience, both for retailers and customers, without the overheads of a multi-day event,” Brown told MCV.

We don’t anticipate the same visitor numbers as other gaming events. However, every single person who attends the London Gaming Market is there for just one reason – to spend – so retailers should experience a much better return on the cost of attending, and shoppers don’t have to battle their way through a large event to find the stores.”

London Gaming Market is primarily focused on retro software and hardware, aswell as tabletop games and tie-in products.
