About the show: RetroWorld is a video game related expo held annually in Connecticut. It is a celebration of Classic and Retro Video Gaming that also embraces Tabletop Gaming, Modern Video Gaming, Homebrew Gaming, Anime, Action Figures, Comic Books, Cosplay, Arcade Machines, and much more.
Now in its third year, RWX is driven by Vendors, Exhibitors, Panelists, Tournaments and a robust Freeplay Arcade & Console Gaming area. RetroWorld Expo brings gamers and retro enthusiasts from all over the country (and beyond) together for an awesome event to look forward to every year.
After two successful years at the Toyota Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT RWX is moving to a much larger venue at the Connecticut Convention Center. With over 100,000 sqft, the convention center accommodates approx 200 exhibitors, a larger free play arcade, console freeplay and additional gaming tournaments. Additional guests and panel rooms will also be added with extended hours. With all these additions and even more planned, RWX 2017 will be the biggest yet! RWX 2017, Bigger, better, radder!
