Thursday, June 05, 2008 Confirms Attendance at Gaming Life Expo

The poker apparel and accessories website,, will be making an appearance at the 2008 Gaming Life Expo, and their Mascot might be, as well.

The upcoming 2008 World Series of Poker is expected to be the biggest circuit event, and the same goes for the 2008 Gaming Life Expo (GLE).

The GLE is a trade show where those who attend can expect to find a huge selection of the most recent gaming lifestyle products, cars, liquors and gadgets. The guests are offered to learn from, experience and purchase the newest poker and card playing products on the market, including apparel, jewelry, books, magazines, art and travel. Plus, there will be live entertainment, celebrity appearances and giveaways.

Last year over 50,000 people attended the GLE and more than 100 booths were visited from local, national and international vendors. This year’s theme focuses on “Games and Gear,” featuring poker apparel, products, and guest appearances at booths by various poker stars. The 2008 show certainly has expectations to grow and be even more exciting, especially with certain vendors, such as DonkeyGear, making an appearance.

Established in the dawn of 2008, DonkeyGear is a poker apparel and accessories website that offers humorous poker products for all styles of playing poker, particularly the poker donkey. While their mascot, Jack, has only been seen as an illustration on their website, T-Shirts, and other media, he might be making a live appearance at the upcoming GLE.

“It should be a lot of fun to have Jack make an appearance at this years Gaming Life Expo. We’re all about what poker is: a very fun game. I think this sometimes gets lost in the spirit of some poker tournaments. Sure there’s a lot of money to be won, but in the end, it’s still a game!” – Vern Toland, President of

This years Gaming Life Expo will be from July 3-6, 11am-6pm in the 55,000 square-foot Rio All-suites Hotel and Casinon Pavilion.
