New Gaming Expo

From Gamespot:

Next August, a new gaming expo will take over the Los Angeles Convention Center.

While there’s still no doubt that May’s E3 will be the biggest gaming event of the year, a new gaming expo has been announced that is open to the public and not restricted by age. The new three-day show, the Ultimate Gamers Expo, will run from August 15 through 17 in the Los Angeles Convention Center’s south hall.

The purpose of the UGE is to allow “gamers of all ages to test-drive the latest games and platforms, participate in tournaments, attend game design workshops, and enjoy live entertainment.” The UGE is running at the same time as the X-Games, which will take place adjacent to the convention center.
