Australia's largest video game and entertainment software retailer has announced what will be the biggest gaming event in Australian history, the EB Games EXPO to be held 15-16 October at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
EB Games EXPO will showcase the hottest new release and upcoming titles playable for the first time in Australia plus exciting live presentations from international game developers spanning across 10,000 square metres.
After three years of work behind the scenes on the project, Trent Weekes, EB Games national events manager, explained that the EB Games EXPO will unite the Australian gaming community and will give gamers the opportunity to experience the biggest and best of what the industry has to offer on a scale that hasn't previously been accomplished in Australia.
“Our internal October conference is already Australia's largest gaming event which attracts a huge amount of international gaming talent, so it was a natural progression that we open the event to the gaming community,” said Weekes.
There will be a variety of different events across EB Games EXPO with the inaugural Australian Final of World Cyber Games, the world's largest international e-sport tournament and festival as well as the EB Arena spectacular featuring Showtime FMX performing heart pounding freestyle motocross.
