Press release:
Yes, that’s right! Game On Expo is making its grand return in 2020 with even more eSports championships, retro and tabletop play, music performances, anime cosplay, celebrity guests – and the same welcoming atmosphere from previous years.

Boasting more than 10,000 attendees in 2019 alone, Game On Expo has quickly become the largest and most popular gaming event in Arizona.

Laser focused on G.A.M.E. (Gaming, Anime, Music, and eSports) content, Game On Expo was created in 2015 by streaming legend John Lester/Gamester81 and Neil Kotler – who owns one of Phoenix’ most beloved retro gaming stores and Arizona’s largest anime seller, Collectors Marketplace.

For 2020, the organizers are planning a Classic Tetris World Championship regional qualifier and even more of an emphasis on Super Smash Bros. tournaments. There will also be a unique gaming-focused auction where attendees can bid on rare items.

Quick Facts
When: August 7-9, 2020
Where: Phoenix Convention Center
Tickets: $35 Early Bird pricing – on sale now at ShowClix

QUOTE
“It’s been 5 years since we started Game On Expo – and we can hardly believe how much the show has grown. This has always been a labor of love for us – a place for anyone in the Southwestern United States (including Arizona, New Mexico, Southern California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah – and Western Oklahoma and Texas) to celebrate our shared love of games, anime, and everything in-between.


Last year, we had the entire main voice cast of the original Pokémon show meet fans – the first reunion since the show ended. We’re planning some equally exciting things for Game On Expo in 2020!”

John Lester (Co-Founder, Game On Entertainment)
