Exhibitor Space Nearly Filled
A tradition of Classic Gaming Expo has been to gather the best of exhibitors and vendors of retro gaming merchandise and this year you'll get the best mix ever. The latest homebrews, the most affordable vintage products, and the most diverse lot of nostalgic goodies will be crammed into the main hall. The space filled up quickly and we've re-arranged the floor plan a number of times to accommodate everyone... but there's always room for one more!
Check out the Exhibitors page for a preview of
what you will find this year. If you've been thinking about exhibiting

New for 2K12: Classic Gaming Expo™ Auction Preview
If you've been to CGE before, do you know that feeling as you're perusing the auction items an hour before it begins that you won't have time to research, check against your collection, or even get enough cash to bid? We know the feeling all too well.
The Classic Gaming Expo auction is always a highlight of the weekend's events and this year we're kicking it up a notch by offering attendees the opportunity to put a photo preview here on the site as well as for potential buyers to get a peek at some of the items with plenty of time to prepare.
For all of the details and a preview of what we expect to see so far, visit our auction page.
Classic Gaming Expo™ 2012 Dates Announced
The countdown has begun! Mark your calendars for Vegas this summer as Classic Gaming Expo returns to The Plaza Hotel for another tour through videogaming's rich history on August 11th and 12th, 2012.
We visited the Plaza early in the fall of 2011 after hearing that it had been COMPLETELY renovated. Skeptical, we toured around without announcing ourselves to discover that the casino didn't smell like smoke, the rooms had all been given makeovers, and the ballroom where we had hosted this show many times before years earlier was torn down and being re-designed. We came to discover that the hotel is under new management and all of the brand new furnishings meant for the aborted "Fontaine Bleau" Casino on the strip were purchased by The Plaza. New features have opened as well, including Swinger's Club, Oscar's Steak House, Island Sushi Grill, Exposed and more, many of which will create some interesting dynamics with our attendees. Though the sign by the loading dock doesn't look much different, it's message and what's inside certainly rings true. This is NOT the same old Plaza!
Pages on this site will be updated for the 2012 event as registration, news, vendors, guests, sponsors, events and other details are available.
See you all in Vegas!
