So phew, the Electronics & Gaming Expo actually did happen, and has meant a number of skeptics were – in general – proved wrong. The coverage and feedback received so far has generally been positive and supportive, with many willing it to come back annually, and it seems that the wish for a bigger and better event in 2016 will indeed be a reality.
As many of you know, we had a hand in making part of the expo a reality, but it was more than just us – we worked with a group of dedicated organisations (in Orena, Ehaven, Clan Connection and TGN Racing Simulators), sponsors and volunteers to ensure the event was a success.
Rather than go on about the event (again), we’ll direct you to where Zombie Dredd wrote all about EGE on the MWEB GameZone site, and use this opportunity to thank all those that played a part in helping us make the #EGELAN at EGE 2015 a success. Thank you.
Over the next few days, we will be running a few additional wrap up articles that will focus on the results from the tournaments, as well as the other winners that have been eagerly waiting to find out who won what. So please check back daily.
