Origins is pleased to announce Mayfair Games as show co-sponsor of the 2011 Origins Game Fair! Mayfair Games will be increasing the scope of its activities at the show to enhance the experience and enjoyment of the attendees. The Origins Game Fair will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center June 22-26, 2011.
“Mayfair Games is thrilled to be a co-sponsor of Origins,” said Larry Roznai, President, Mayfair Games. “Mayfair is totally dedicated to making the gaming experience for the entire family the best it can be and being a co-sponsor of Origins will allow us to create that kind of amazing experience.”
Mayfair will increase its presence in the exhibit hall to over 5,000 square feet with additional demo tables, tournament space, and the new Mayfair Family Fun Area.
In addition to the exhibit hall, Mayfair again hosts “The Mayfair Room” with tournaments, a library fully stocked with their games, and even more life-sized giant games than last year. Thursday through Saturday evening, Mayfair will host a Room Party with complimentary soft drinks and snacks. With the purchase of the Mayfair Games Room Ribbon, attendees will have complimentary access to these events and the all-new Preview Play Program.
“Gameplay should be fun. We see it as our mission to fill your Origins hours with enjoyment,” said Robert Carty, VP of Sales/Marketing.
Mayfair Games will continue to sponsor the Kid’s Program and Origins Theme Areas. The Origins Kids Room grew 25% in 2010 and will again offer fun for families and young attendees in 2011. Mayfair will also co-sponsor the Origins Theme Area. Attendees can join Origins’ industry and pop culture guests for brunch and conversation, and at night adults can enjoy a local micro-brew and play games in the pub’s theme area.
Mayfair will host another North American Catan Championship Qualifier tournament in 2011. The winner will receive a trip to the 2011 North American Catan Championship Tournament at Gen Con Indy 2011 (travel, hotel and convention badge provided). The winner of the NACC Tournament at Gen Con Indy 2011 will travel to the 2012 Worldwide Catan Championship to compete in the tournament as the North American Representative.
“We are excited to have Mayfair as our Origins show co-sponsor for 2011,” Executive Director of GAMA, John Ward said. “Mayfair is an outstanding partner, providing the Mayfair Room, giant games, tournaments, the Theme Area, and Kids Program. We always look to make the experience at Origins more memorable, and I think Mayfair gives people a lot to look forward to at Origins this year.”
