    Default Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo - April 26, 2008

    The organizer of this event e-mailed me some info and invited me to represent the mighty PDF empire at his event...I'm still not sure if my stay-at-home-dad schedule will permit me to make it there as either exhibitor or attendee, but either way, I'm passing on the info to you, the consumer:

    What - Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo
    When - Saturday, April 26
    Where - Oklahoma City Community College campus, located just south of OKC near Will Rogers World Airport
    Who - Drew Stone / Computer Arts and Technology Society at Oklahoma City Community College

    What all will they have there? Is it kind of like the OVGE that they would have in Tulsa? It isn't too far of a drive from Ft Worth, and if there are a bunch of games for sale, I will make the 2 1/2 hour drive to check it out

    Thank's for the heads up. Would you mind PMing the organizers contact info to me? I may be able to get (a major beverage company) to help sponsor it. It will depend on the event size and whether or not we have a more "major" event that night. Maybe we could get our girls out there to hand out some free (energy drinks).

    Is there a website? Any other info available online? I'd like to go but need to know enough that it's worth the drive.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    At this point, you know everything that I know; I've sent another e-mail to Drew asking him for more info that I can pass along, and inviting him to the forums here so he can tell you about it himself.

    I'm planning on being there - provided I can get some more info from him myself - though I'm not sure yet what stuff I'll be bringing. I'd say that my collection of Coleco tabletop games and the PDF DVD are likely contenders though. (I doubt that I'll be selling anything - I might bring my trade pile, a.k.a. Where Commons Go To Die, with me though.)

    Default Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo 2008

    Hi everyone! Hopefully I'll be able to answer a few of your questions...

    What all will they have there?
    To reiterate what I just sent to Phosphor Dot Fossils:

    OEGE is an event which is free for the public ($30 for a vendor/exhibitor booth) that is a celebration of video games, both old and new. We plan on having displays and vendors ranging from arcade machines to the early Atari consoles to the latest in games. There will also be vendors selling game-related items, such as clothing, music, movies, action figures and comics. Our college is now offering a degree in game design and will be featuring work from some of the students, including concept design, artwork, and simple complete games. The Computer Arts and Technology Society will also be sponsoring a game tournament. It is our hope that through this event that we can introduce retro gaming to the younger generations, provide a destination for fans of classic gaming to gather, preview new and exciting games from both studios and students, and have fun.

    Is it kind of like the OVGE that they would have in Tulsa?
    This event will be similar to the one in Tulsa, only it spans the entire age of gaming, from the classics to the bleeding edge. Just to make things clear, we are not affiliated with OVGE and highly recommend going to that event when it's held again.

    Would you mind PMing the organizers contact info to me?
    PM sent.

    Is there a website?
    There is no website at this time, but I'm trying to work with the college to set one up. If that fails, I will host one myself.

    ...inviting him to the forums here so he can tell you about it himself.
    Thanks for the invite!

    We're still looking for vendors/exhibitors. If any of you or someone you know of would like to participate, please get in touch with me. I can get the vendor/exhibitor forms sent via snail mail, email, or faxed. We also have mini-posters and fliers (in both print and PDF forms) along with some simple web graphics if you wish to help promote the event. Thank you all for your interest!

    Thanks for answering the questions, dstone. I have one myself: What time in the day do you plan to open and close the show?

    I'm hoping to go and it's a long drive for me. Knowing when you'll open will help me plan the trip better.

    We're going to have the vendors that can make it set up on Friday starting at 4pm and ending at 8pm. Setup will resume Saturday from 8am-9:45am, with the doors opening for the public at 10am. We'll start wrapping things up at around 5-6pm.

    Sure but I may not be able to make it myself. I may have to work that night. I should know more next week.

    I will definitely be there. Now I just have to figure out in the next three weeks what I'll be bringing with me, because my video-game-show-exhibitor days seem like part of another life now.

    I would love to go but I'm in the process of moving to Owasso. So hopefully next year.

    Everything has gone though as planned and we will be there with drinks for everyone. Unfortunately, though, we have another event that evening so my girls won't be able to make it to OEGE. You will have two plain guys, one of them being me, and we will have ice cold Full Throttle in hand. Compliments of Coca-Cola. Yes, by that I mean "free."

    For current vendors/exhibitors: Just a reminder, setup begins Friday, April 25 at 4:00pm and goes through 8:00pm. Setup will resume Saturday at 8:00am and the doors will open at 10:00am.

    Thank you all for your interest!
