Durham, NC July 2, 2014 – on the tail of a successful ECGC the Triangle Game Initiative (TGI) is bringing the tiltExpo to the Durham Convention Center, September 4th- 7th. This is a consumer friendly event with vendors, games and live action play and is being targeted to appeal to the thousands who have attended and enjoyed the previous Escapist Expos. Act now to take advantage of special early bird pricing as low as $5 for the kickoff party… Show more and $15 for a day pass. Events start Thursday, September 4th at 8pm and continue until 4pm Sunday, September 7th.
“By bringing games back to Durham, we hope to fill the void that the area is experiencing from the absence of an Escapist Expo, while adding more entertainment and social activities, we expect to take the existing audience’s expectation and blow it out of the water” explains Walter Rotenberry, Co-President, of the Triangle Game Initiative.
Triangle Game Initiative is partnering with Durham native The Escapist Magazine as tiltExpo’s media partner. “Downtown Durham is our hometown, and nothing makes us happier than to see the hometown flourish! When TGI asked us how we'd feel about having them host a game festival in Durham this year, we signed on immediately as their media partner,” said Alexander Macris, Senior Vice President of Defy Media’s Emerging Brands.
“Whether you're into board gaming, CCGs, console games, or tabletop RPGs - tiltExpo is the place to be!,” said Zachary Boyd, tiltExpo’s Managing Director.
