I wanted to start a list for Retro Gaming Expos that'll be happening in North America and other parts of the world in 2017. If you know of any you think should be on the list, let me know. No meet-up is too small. I'm going to start with some of the obvious big shows, but would love to sprinkle smaller hyper-local meet-ups as well as they become known.

Portland Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE) and the Northwest Classic Games Enthusiasts (NWCGE) 4th Annual Swap Meet
Portland Doubletree Hotel
More Info
Once again we are taking it old-school...back when it was all about getting buyers and sellers together to help build collections and help sellers find good homes for their extras while preserving the cultural and historical aspects of videogames. Nothing fancy - just games, games and more games. And it's only $5 for admission!
