Recommended Posts

Ugh. Unbelievably I'm flying again that day. Happened last year too. Was just talking to my son about this.

I wish they held a similar event in Toronto

That would be a good thing. 

I’m sure it would be a popular event. 

For sure.

Report from VRGE: it was great.  While nowhere near as big as PRGE, it was well organized from ease of ticket purchase to musicians to publicly available schedule of panel.  This was a well run Retro Expo.

 

The lines to get into VRGE:

I agree, it's a decent sized, well run convention with a lot of good panels, vendors and music. I'm looking forward to PRGE in the fall!
