Apex 2013 is here and ready to change the way you look at Video Game events. During the past few months we have been working every day on new ideas, concepts, and ways to give all of you the best experience possible. This year has been great as we have grown exponentially! Though we had some growing pains last year, we have now worked out a lot of kinks to make 2013 the year of Apex!

We have addressed many of the issues APEX2012 was criticized for. This year we will have plenty of equipment for our events to ensure everything runs on time. As such, we have redone our entire schedule to ensure each event is given ample time to run efficiently. We have also changed the layout of the venue so that we can make sure there is enough room for everyone. That means that no matter how many people enter there will be enough for everyone to have a great time. We have also spoken with the eateries and we will be bringing you even more food choices. Our goal this year is to provide a great experience for everyone that will give people a mix of casual activities with competitive events.

Looking towards the upcoming year we will be doing a lot of great things for our Video Game communities. We will be doing Live, and pre-recorded, interviews featuring special guests, top players, and newcomers. Anyone and everyone can be interviewed by our team and expect to have some great stuff to watch as the tournament has some down-time between matches.

Do not expect just the interviews to be the only great things we are doing. We will have many booths there to give people something to look around for. This can include development groups, industry booths, and special “fan-made” booths that will give people PLENTY of free gifts and give-a-ways. To add to that Artist Alley is returning to give all those looking for awesome Pins, Stickers, and various trinkets for everyone to take home things for yourself and family.

As the year goes on expect to hear huge announcements. Looking towards the future, Apex 2013 will be the event of year.
