Title: Retro Event 2013 - 26 October 2013 in Elst, The Netherlands
Post by: revivalstudios on October 16, 2013, 08:33:50 AM
Hi Guys,

Retro Event 2013 is a retro gaming event combined with a retrogaming-fair that attracts many people from across europe. We have visitors and exhibitors from the UK, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Austria at our event.  Ofcourse there are lots of classic gaming items for sale and trade, but this is more than just the fair.

We have:
- A mini-museum part with various playable consoles and kiosks
- A dedicated Homebrew area with well known homebrewers from across europe present covering all platfroms from commodore to vectrex.
- Many new homebrew releases or exclusive first-looks at new projects at the event.
- Free retro giveaway between 16.00 and 17.00 where a new retrogaming item is given away each minute!

And then we have an evening-program as well, with:
- presentation on how to build your own arcade cabinet
- Q&A session with C64 developer "boys without brains" , known for games like Hawkeye, Flimbo's Quest and Disposable Hero
- On-stage Performance by videogame music legend Jeroen Tel (Maniacs of Noise)

The event is close to the german border and only 800m from the local trainstation, so it is very accessable for people abroad as well. If you live anywhere NEAR the netherlands there is no reason not to visit!
