Auckgeddon is on the move!
Post By JVCA. 27/11/08, 05:51 pm

That's right - Auckgeddon will no longer be held in the Aotea Centre - from 2009 it will be held at the ASB Showgrounds - same days (still labour weekend), just a different location. For those who've been to the Easter Show, or Big Boys Toys - that's where it is. :3

It is with great happiness Very Happy that we officially announce the move from the Aotea centre in Auckland city (our home for ten years) to the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane Auckland nyahaha .
This has been a long time coming and was not an easy decision to make, however the response from the gaming industry and sponsors have been overwhelminly positive.
We will be taking all four main halls, upstairs areas and the Logan Cambell Centre and massively increasing the size of the event.
This allows us to bring in new events, add attractions that we couldn't do before and make the event even more awesome than ever before!
The show will still be held during labour weekend on october 24-26th 2009 and we are booked in for future years already Exclamation
we will make announcements as we progress on new events and happenings, so stay tuned.

So, for those (like me, hahah) who found it too cramped this year, this is good news. But what does everyone think? :3

(P.S. The showgrounds are in Greenlane. :3 http://www.asbshowgrounds.co.nz/index.html )

Well this means I need to find a new backpackers, just as well, I was not impressed with ACB this year. Between the lousy showers and poor service I was hoping to get an excuse to find a new place.

That's a good point - but this year they had a few arcade games in the convention centre, and if the sponsors are positive, then maybe there will be even more arcadey games next year? :) But that doesn't solve the plaza problem, I suppose. >_>

Bigger space YAY.

It was soooooooooooooo crowded this year, so a good move I think to move to a bigger venue, although the plaza next to the Aotea Centre was handy. I can't wait to see what new stuff they put in now that there is more room.

And my bro heartily agrees that it will be good to have it all on one level!

Hopefully it won't be so awkward for cosplayers with sticky outy bits on their costumes next year?

While it is bigger its not as easy for everyone to get to and may lose numbers from that. Obviously from the big draw they had this year is one of the reasons the call was made. Other than the trouble Bill has had with the people running the Aotea centre. My problem with it is I loved the lay out of each floor being dedicated to a certain event, the asb showgrounds means the layout will be similar to how wellygeddon is (though on a much larger scale) which i think is a horrendous layout. And being that it will be their first time trying it next year will be pretty terrible. If they can fix it up and improve it im all for it. But sadly next year will be bad as the first times always are.

Well hopefully they've taken the fact that there may be problems organising things in a new layout into account, and will actively try to minimise any problems. We've got to realise that while moving is a big deal, especially to a whole new layout, the organisers have been doing Armageddon for a number of years, and are very experienced.

It's not so strange having this event at the ASB showgrounds. People are already used to having other big events there, so I don't know if there will be THAT big loss of numbers attending. It probably will be harder for out of towners to get there though.
