The 7th annual Portland Retro Gaming Expo – PRGE will be held Saturday and Sunday, September 29-30, 2012 at the Oregon Convention Center.
The new home for PRGE in 2012 is the Oregon Convention Center. We will have the entire 60,000 square foot Exhibit Hall C packed with vendors and games plus separate meeting rooms for our speakers, panels and tournaments. The Oregon Convention Center is conveniently located right on the MAX light rail line and is close to several hotels. The entire venue is comfortably climate controlled and includes several on-site options for food, ATMs and plenty of places to sit and relax.

Like in previous years we will be showing off working Commodore 64 and VIC-20 computers. It will be really cool to continue giving Commodore computers the respect and exposure they deserve and to also promote our Commodore Users Group.
At our vendor booth we will be selling various Commodore 64 and VIC-20 game cartridges, Commodore disk software, vintage Commodore magazines, books and of course Commodore hardware including the Amiga and PET computers.
As an added bonus this year we will also have other computers and consoles represented at our booth. Some examples: Nintendo NES, Sega Genesis, Atari 2600, TurboGrafx-16, Vectrex, Game Boy and so much more!
Be sure to stop by our Commodore booth while you’re at the Expo and say “hello”. You’ll be able to play hundreds of classic games. Come and relive your childhood memories of vintage games, computers and consoles.
If you haven’t done so already, mark your calendar for this coming September 29 and 30, 2011 to attend the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. We’ll see you there!
