I've been trying to find an angle to incorporate more video games into the
mix because that's what draws crowds.  I don't want the VCF to become yet
another clasic video game event, but it will at least cater to a slightly
broader interest group.

Yes, it didn't work out that well.  With the proper planning and execution
it could do very well, but we're both big events (CAEX is far bigger of
course in terms of attendanec) and trying to meld the two together is
challenging, so in the end we concluded that it's better to just have
separate events and do cross advertising.
