Come Join Us for Escapist Expo 2013


If you didn’t make it to Expo 2012, you’ll have another chance to join the fun this October.

Perhaps you were one of the nearly 6,000 people in attendance at Escapist Expo last year, or perhaps you couldn’t get out of work to make it to the show. Maybe you just heard about it too late to attend. Whatever your situation was last year, we’ve got great news. This October 4, 5, and 6, right here in Durham, NC, we’ll be hosting our second annual Escapist Expo at the Durham Convention Center, Carolina Theater, and Durham Armory. In case you hadn’t heard, Expo 2012 was a lot of fun!

At Expo 2012 we had Humans vs. Zombies in attendance, culminating in an epic last stand on Sunday. We held a charity Magic tournament benefitting Gamers Helping Gamers. We had tabletop RPG rooms dedicated to, well, role playing. You could watch anime on the big screen at the Carolina Theater. There was a two-day League of Legends tournament, there were three days of console tournaments, and we even brought in some of your favorite Escapist talent for you to rub elbows with. What I’m getting at is that we had a lot of stuff on tap for you to enjoy. We’ve got twice as much space as last year, so Expo 2013 will be even bigger and better.

Be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming announcements about the various events, activities, and personalities that we’ll have at Expo 2013.
