Competitive gaming, or eSports, isn’t just popular. It’s an international phenomenon; one that generates hundreds of millions in revenue and packs stadiums to capacity, from Brooklyn to Seoul.
Here in South Africa, this year’s rAge Expo, the country’s biggest video gaming expo, was held over the first weekend in October – and despite rainy weather, it attracted 35,845 visitors.
The Workspace: Sponsorship of BerZerk Gamers
The Workspace was delighted to sponsor five BerZerK Gaming teams, who were invited to compete in this year’s hotly contested Digital Gaming Championship (DGC) at the 2017 rAge Expo.
To help the teams prepare, we hosted a fun and very successful training boot camp in the conferencing auditorium (the Atrium) at our Wynberg branch. A number of team members flew in to attend the training and the competition.
With its large screen for broadcasting the action, high-speed internet and plenty of space for the gamers, the Atrium was the perfect space for the training.
