EB Expo 2017 heads to the gold Coast

22 Jun 2017

This year’s EB Expo is switching from Sydney to the sun-kissed Gold Coast.  

From Saturday 7th – Sunday 8th October the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre will host the game retailer’s annual celebration of video games and pop culture. This is a return to the location of the first EB Expo way back in 2011.

Each year since the show has gone from strength to strength, being the first place to try upcoming games and attracting a number of high-profile developers and industry luminaries. Last year, Xbox boss, Phil Spencer, headlined the event kicking of the show with his keynote speech.

So far for this year’s expo, many world-class publishers have already been confirmed for the event, with more to be annotated soon.

EB Expo 2017 confirmed publishers, so far include PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, Activision, Bethesda, Ubisoft and Capcom.

If you fancy a gaming break in the sun this October, head over to, as tickets are available now.
