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!
www.cgexpo.com will be updated for the 2012 event as registration, news, vendors, guests, sponsors, events and other details are available.
See you all in Vegas!
