"Are you tired of visiting the same retrofairs with the same sellers?"
"Would you like to be able to do more than just buying stuff at these events?"
"How about an event that recognises there is more to retro gaming than nintendo?"


Well, look no further than Retro event 2013, held on Saturday the 26th of october in Elst (Gelderland), The Netherlands (just across the german border) and get ready for the retroevent of a lifetime!

- Visit our Retro fair with international sellers, ranging from single-tables to large sellers.
- Take yourself or your kids to the museum area with many playable game systems and homecomputers.
- Visit the homebrew area with the largest collection of homebrew available (across all platforms) and talk to the developers.
- Hear famous game developers from back in the day talk about developing games (and/or have them sign your games).
- Enjoy the many new homebrew releases that debut at the event.
- Play the whole Mage Trilogy, including Mage 3 (that won't be out until summer 2014) when the game makes its first public appearance at the show.
- Learn how to build your own arcade cabinet.
- Watch Commodore 8-bit music legend Jeroen Tel perform live on stage!

Sounds amazing doesn't it? Well, it doesn't stop there...
 
We decided to go just that extra bit of crazy and give away hundreds of euros worth of FREE game consoles, games, accessoires and memorabilia between 16.00 and 17.00. One item per minute for a total of 60 items!!!

So stop what you are doing, get your agenda and plan in your visit to RETRO EVENT 2013 on October 26th, 2013 in Elst(Gelderland), The Netherlands. We already have many people visiting from the UK, Belgium, Germany and Austria, so there is no excuse for not visiting this great event if you are living abroad!

For more information, visit the Retro Event 2013 website at: http://www.retroevent.org

See you in October!!!

Make sure that you know that the Retro Event and Eurocon are two different things.

Eurocon is from friday till Sunday and consist of a group of collectors who meet each year at a different international location. If you want to join for the whole weekend the fee will probably be around 50,00

Retro Event is only on saturday and is a part of Eurocon for this year only. It's like a regular Retrofair but with additions like Q&A and a live performance. And it will last till late in the evening instead of till 16.00 like a regular fair.

I never went to Eurocontrol.
So if I understand well, it is for some collectors.
On the site I did not see any price for entry.

Janzl is correct, i have removed it from the Original Post.
However if you are interested in either selling homebrew or demonstrating interested things for videopac or other systems at Retro Event, be sure to contact me and i can hook you up with a FREE TABLE at our homebrew area!
