The team at GameByte are excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with PLAY Expo for their return to Manchester in 2019 as their media partner. The North’s biggest video game festival is taking place on the 4th and 5th May this year in its new home of Manchester Central.
The event features close to a thousand consoles, handhelds, computers, arcade machines, rhythm games, PC’s and more. What’s even better is ALL of them are FREE to play once you’ve paid for your ticket.
Gamers that fancy some competition can even take part in some LAN gaming. You’ll no doubt see some of your favourite games at the event, with Minecraft and Fortnite having a presence along with some of the best retro games. Make sure to keep an eye out for some hidden gems from indie developers whilst you’re there too.
As you’d expect at any good games festival there will be cosplay aplenty, with prizes to be won on Saturday and Sunday. A photo shoot area will also be there, providing several different opportunities for guests throughout the weekend.
For those that don’t fancy playing video games or cosplaying but still want to attend then there’s still plenty for you to do. Tabletop gaming will be there for those that prefer their games of the board or card variety and there’s a huge range of guests and streamers to see too.
Manchester is GameByte’s home and we’re proud to be able to partner with Replay Events to help spread the word of PLAY Expo Manchester’s new location and date. Previously at EventCity in October the new location and date may unfortunately catch long term attendees off guard. Hopefully we can help spread the word in time for people to still attend!
