From the press release:

    Philadelphia, April 23, 2007 – Lunar Tide Communications, Inc. announces the pricing for attendee passes and exhibitor space at America’s VideoGame Expo 2007.

    “VGXPO’s mantra is that ‘no gamer should be left out’. We want to make VGXPO accessible to everyone. To do this, we’ve priced single day tickets at just $12.50 when you buy them online, ($15.00 at the door), and kids prices are discounted,” stated Ed Fleming, founder and executive director of VGXPO. “Our convention is all about gamers, and we have set ticket prices so that the entire family can attend.”

    Additionally, to encourage the entire family to attend, VGXPO will provide free access to kids 7 years old and younger. Pre-registration tickets and passes for VGXPO go on sale today at VGXPO.com.

    From an exhibition and sponsorship perspective, America’s VideoGame Expo is a marketing tool built to showcase products and services to a large consumer audience. VGXPO is a one-of-the-kind event where organizations can engage videogame consumers face-to-face.

    Recognizing the importance of return on investment (ROI), VGXPO’s management set standard exhibit fees at this year’s expo at $20.00 per square foot. Additionally, helping to make the VGXPO experience a cost-effective marketing tool, the venue that the VGXPO takes place in, the Pennsylvania Convention Center, is considered by event planners across the country to be one of the most progressive event facilities in the country.

    Unique in the videogame event industry, only VGXPO provides marketing tools for the largest and smallest companies in the games industry. For small developers, ‘Mom and Pop’ sized vendors, and startups (with revenues under $250,000), VGXPO will offer the Market Place. This novel marketing tool is built for companies who what to be part of consumer videogame events, but who otherwise would be left out because of high costs. With prices starting at less then $200, exhibitors in the Market Place can select from a number of packages to fit even the smallest budgets.

    “We’ve developed VGXPO to provide you and your company with the highest possible return on investment – VGXPO’s value proposition is designed to drive high impact at the lowest possible cost,” stated Fleming. “If you look at the cost-benefit, VGXPO adds up – there’s no reason why your company shouldn’t be there.”

[Editor’s Note]: It’s good to see something like this happen. I hope that they are able to get enough people to go. With the loss of E3, something needs to fill the void. The question is which show will do it. I guess only time will tell. I wish these guys the best of luck. ~Garv
