Play NYC - A Gaming Convention in New York is Coming Back Soon

We are always up for a gaming convention of any kind, and it seems that New York has one that might just interest some of you readers out there.  Yes, we are a Canadian based website, but that doesn’t mean we can’t highlight something in the US, as we have readers all over the globe.  

So, with that being said, PLAY NYC, which a two-day all-games convention that premiered last year in New York, is back.  On August 11th and 12th, gamers and enthusiasts of all ages can experience a weekend-long gaming event that will pack the entire Hammerstein Ballroom with 4 full-floors of games, exclusive interactive installations and game debuts, a live-streaming set with top streamers, and much more. Tickets go on sale May 21st. Exhibitors can now apply to be a part of the show.

During the first event last year, over 5,000 people showed up with 50,000 more joining online. Organizers say that it was a top 3 trending topic on Twitter for most of the first day. This year, organizers expect it to double in size with up to 10,000 gamers and enthusiasts throughout the weekend at its new venue, The Manhattan Center, in the heart of New York City.

Play NYC events will run Aug. 11-12 from 10 am to 8 pm daily. Tickets start at $30 per person.

For those making their way there for the first time, the organizers have provided the following for getting to the venue:

  • The Manhattan Center is conveniently located one block away from Penn Station and is easily accessible by taking the 1/2/3, A/C/E trains to 34th Street/Penn Station, PATH trains from New Jersey to 33rd Street/Avenue of the Americas, via Metro-North take the Shuttle from Grand Central Terminal Times Square and transfer downtown to the 1/2/3 trains to 34th Street/Penn Station.

So, if you are in New York in August, you may just want to check things out at Play NYC.
