The Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo (OEGE)
« on: January 22, 2009, 10:26:08 pm »
Hello All,
 I'm Professor Akram Taghavi-Burris from the Oklahoma City Community College. Not only am I program director of our Video Game Design program I am also faculty sponsor of our student organization the Computer Arts and Technology Society (CATSociety). The students in our CATSociety are putting together the Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo (OEGE) coming this April. This will be our second annual OEGE and the students really want to expand from last years event. Last year despite the fact that there were only 5 vendors we had over 100 attend and had a short clip of the expo on the 6pm news that evening.

Oklahoma Electronic Game Expo is a day of video-game revelry. Our 2009 Expo will mark our second annual gaming destination in Oklahoma- where gamers and industry insiders can come together to celebrate video-games.

Attendees come to OEGE to experience the newest games, encounter game industry legends, compete in tournaments, buy games, and meet with friends.

In efforts to make this years event bigger and better, we'd like to set up a steering committee to help the students plan the event. The committee would help with getting vendors, advertising, sponsoring and just letting people know about this event. If any of you would like to be on our committee please email me at: [email protected]

Also if anyone has any general ideas, suggestions or questions about our expo again please email me.

Finally you can also visit our expo site at: http://oege.catblog.occc.edu/wordpress/about/

--Mrs. Akram Taghavi-Burris  :D

this Sounds great. Has your committee thought about having a mini-tournament there?  If not and your interested Im sure there would be a few of us willing to help.  I know I would.  As long as it dont conflict with my trip to Mexico in April.   Also There quite a few people im sure that could / would suggest and give any kinda of input you may want / need.  We are a very diverse group here.

Hi furyswrath,
 Yes we are very eager to put together some kind of game tournament. We'd also like some of the proceeds from the tournament go towards the Child's Play charity (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/).

  We'd love ideas as to what games, and perhaps some sponsors, who could provide the equipment or even prizes for the tournament.

 You mentioned yourself and others might be willing to assist in the planning phase of our expo, your welcome to attend our Steering Committee meeting, please invite others that might be interested. If you or others do plan on attending please RSVP to me by email, this way I know the size of the room to request and will get back to you with the room location.

Thanks for you interest and any help you can provide. ;D
