There’ll be a new highlight on the gaming calendar next year, with industry and consumer show GamerMania making its ExCeL London debut on 29-31 July.
Brought to you by MCM Central, the company behind the hugely successful MCM London Comic Con and other top pop culture events, GamerMania offers UK gaming a superb platform to reach out to worldwide industry and consumer visitors alike.
“The UK ranks as one of the top ten videogames markets in the world, with London a capital of gaming in Europe. GamerMania will fly the flag for the UK in the worldwide gaming industry and ExCel London, the capital’s largest exhibition venue, is excited to be a part of it,” said Jeremy Rees, ExCeL London’s executive director.
“ExCel London already hosts over four million visitors a year and, with fabulous accessibility and a recent £15 million investment into the boulevard, this world class venue is set to host another award-winning and global industry-leading event.”
Positioned after E3 and SDCC and ahead of Gamescom, GamerMania provides an ideal opportunity to showcase upcoming titles, technologies and more. The show will feature major gaming studios, LAN, PC and retro gaming, eSports, YouTube content and streaming — plus a dedicated Indie Play Zone to give independent creators the chance to show off their latest completed or in-development titles.
Plans are also underway to include developer sessions, panels, retail zones and special events, including an official MCM cosplay show. In addition, GamerMania is teaming up with ESL, the world’s largest eSports company, to bring elite eSports entertainment to London.
