Are you hardware, software or gaming enthusiast? Well brace yourself! rAge Expo 2013 is coming soon! The next edition of what has become the top South African computing, gaming and technology expo will be held at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg from the 4th to the 6th of October!
For the 11th year in history rAge Expo will be a place where everyone can satisfy their inner geek. The expo is managed and run by NAG magazine and has grown onto one of the premier events on Johannesburg’s calendar. Last year more than 28,000 people visited the expo.
Visitors are invited to browse through exhibition and retail stalls featuring products and services from Afrihost, Alienware, Bobblehead SA, BT Games, CNA, Cats Digital Experts, Cosmic Comics, CTU Training, Dark Carnival, Game Kidz, Intel, Dell, Matrix Warehouse, Smallville Comics, Ster-Kinekor Entertainment, Telkom, Wizards Books & Games and various other exhibitors. Chances are that you’ll find everything and anything the geek inside you desires at this year’s rAge Expo. The expo will be open from 10 AM to 6 PM on the Friday, from 9 AM to 6 PM on the Saturday and from 10 AM to 4 PM on the Sunday. Tickets cost R70 per person per day and can be bought on the iTickets website. Weekend tickets are also available for R120.
Every year more than 2,000 gamers make their way to the rAge Expo Coca-Cola Dome to spend 3 sleep-deprived days playing their favourite games, mingling with their friends and making new ones at the NAG LAN. It’s the the biggest BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) LAN in South Africa. The LAN opens at 9 AM on the Friday and closes on the Sunday at 3 PM. No port scanning, hacking or cheating is allowed and no tents are allowed (yes, some gamers think that it’s a camping ground). This part of the expo is extremely popular. Tickets to this year’s NAG LAN sold out in under an hour.
