It’s great to hear your feedback from previous shows, and each year we work hard to try and make EGX bigger and better than ever before. In short, we love games and we know you do too, so we’re bringing back our most popular features for another four days of pure gaming fun.
First on the list (but in no particular order) we have our beloved Retro Games zone. EGX 2020 just wouldn’t be complete without the nostalgic echoes of Pac-Man munching, Mario jumping and Link smashing pots. The Retro Games zone is always a huge hit at EGX, so if you’re looking for an exclusive area where you can kick back and play some vintage games and arcade classics, then you’re in luck.
Not only are we bringing back Tabletop Games, we’re also making it our biggest tabletop gaming area yet! So, if you thought last year was good, EGX 2020 will really knock your socks off. Our Tabletop Games zone is the perfect place if you want to take a breather from the show floor, make new friends and play some awesome, screen-free games. What’s more, you can get your hands on classics like Catan, Dungeons and Dragons, Haunted House on the Hill, Dobble and more!
No one likes to leave the party early which is why we will continue to keep a section of the show open until late for you to chill out, grab a few drinks and play some awesome games. After Hours will also feature retro and tabletop titles, so bring your pals and reflect on the day’s events over a cold beer, a bite to eat and maybe a board game or two. Tickets will be available shortly, so keep your eyes peeled on our social media!
Also making a strong comeback (but with a slightly different name) is the Academy Live section of our show. Formerly known as the Careers Fair, Academy Live will feature all the brilliant brains from GamesIndustry.biz coming together to offer invaluable advice to help you kickstart your career in the gaming industry. You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss your portfolio with industry experts, so if you’re ready for your big break into the word of gaming, Academy Live will give you the cheat codes you need to get your name out there.
Ready for more? Make sure you’re following us on social media as we’ll be revealing more fantastic features over the next few weeks.
