CGE SERVICES ANNOUNCES DATES AND LOCATION FOR
2012 Show Moves Back To Newly Remodeled Plaza Hotel
VALLEY STREAM, NEW YORK – April 13, 2012 – The organizers of Classic Gaming Expo announced today that the 2012 Classic Gaming Expo will
be held August 11 and 12 at the recently renovated Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show’s historic ties
with Las Vegas, and specifically the Plaza Hotel, made it the obvious choice to play host to this year’s convention.
“We were surprised to hear from many of our attendees and celebrity guests alike that they miss the old-school
charm of the Las Vegas Downtown area,” said Joe Santulli, co-organizer of Classic Gaming Expo. “We have
a lot of history with the Plaza Hotel as they hosted our show from 1999 through 2003. After seeing the work and improvements
that they did during their remodeling, there was no question that it was time to bring the show home to the Plaza.”
The Plaza Hotel is located at
the top of the amazing Fremont Street Experience, home to numerous shops, casinos, concerts, and the amazing Viva Vision light
display. The Plaza recently purchased the assets of the aborted Fontainebleau Hotel project and completely overhauled their
rooms, shops, convention area and casino. According to Santulli, the vast amount of things to do in Las Vegas should appeal
to those attendees that make Classic Gaming Expo part of their family vacations.
Over the past fourteen years, people from all over
the world have attended Classic Gaming Expo to see the latest offerings from the various exhibitors, visited the world’s
largest and most comprehensive video game museum, played classic and modern games, and met the luminaries of video gaming’s
past and present. “The excitement and response to this year’s show has been astounding,” stated show founder,
John Hardie. “One quick look at the list of vendors and celebrities on our web-site and you’ll see why 2012
is shaping up to be the greatest Classic Gaming Expo ever. In addition, our museum collection has grown immensely and
will surely be one of the major highlights for every show attendee.”
Classic Gaming Expo is open to people of all ages with an interest in video games – both classic and modern. Information about
ticketing, attendance and past events is available at www.cgexpo.com.
