Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Retroworld Expo 2020 has been cancelled.  We will be rescheduling for the 2021 year.  This was a very tough decision for us to make but due to restrictions that would have to be imposed by the state and convention center at the show both capacity and social distancing wise as well as overall general public health concern we thought it would be best to postpone the show until next year.  Had we continued with the show this year it would not be an event that our fans would expect and we would not want to put on a show that was anything less.  An email notification will be sent out to all attendees and vendors who would like to seek a refund.  If not notified all tickets and vendor reservations will be forwarded to next years 2021 show.  The 2021 date will be announced soon.  We look forward to seeing you next year. 




CAN I TRANSFER MY ADMISSION TICKET OR VENDOR TABLE TO NEXT YEAR?  YES, this is automatically done if you purchased a ticket and have not requested a refund.

WHEN WILL THE EVENT HAPPEN NEXT YEAR?  We hope to announce the 2021 date very soon.

WHAT ABOUT HOTEL CANCELLATIONS? Hotel reservations should be automatically canceled with in the next few days.  You should receive an email cancellation notice.  If you do not, reach out to your respective hotel for resolution.

This is a retro gamers dream come true! There must have been millions of games for sale from vendors all over New England and beyond. There was tons of other related merchandise as well.
The volunteer staff was great, very welcoming and friendly. The setup was very well done and allowed for walking traffic to flow freely. The only disappointment was when I had to leave and come back home!
I can't say enough! This expo ruled!
