EB To Launch New Aussie Games Exhibition - Open To The Public

At the moment EB's home page is running some sort of viral takeover. We can now confirm that it's related to an event that EB is planning - a video games exhibition that will be open to the public.

The EB Vendor show - an event which usually takes place in the Gold Coast bi-annually - is typically an industry video games events where publishers such as EA and Activision demo upcoming titles to prospective EB Store Buyers, in the hope that they'll buy more stock of certain titles.

EB now want to open that event to the public.

According to the ex-employee, EB's plan is to keep the vendor show open for an extra couple of days - over the weekend - and sell tickets, to give consumers an peek at upcoming games. It's an attempt to give the general and inside look into the games industry, but is mostly intended as a way to get people excited about new games.

Considering the information we've gotten from EB's website itself, we're expecting the first show to kick off in Brisbane at roughly October this year.

More news as we get it.


    I think it should be held in...
    Launceston! So I could go haha. I'd love to go, but I'm not flying from tassie to Brisbane for it. I rekon they should tour. They still wouldn't come to tassie but I could probably make Melbourne.

      Is that in Tasmainia? The Bogan state? Lol worst idea possible.

    Sweet! I am gonna try and check it out, will be awesome. What are the dates?

    I'm going to jump out on a limb and suggest that the reason for EB picking Brisbane over other eastern capitals might have something to do with the fact that the Supanova convention, which operates in all three of those capitals, has been consistently larger in terms of attendance in Brisbane than in other state capitals.

    Of course, people have also suggested that the reason Gen Con OZ failed was because it was in Brisbane instead of Sydney or Melbourne, so who knows.
