The Insomnia Gaming Festival returned to NEC Birmingham on 26-29 August with a showcase of the most notable gaming trends, challenges, and exciting new gaming products to emerge and many famous brands were involved.
Virtual reality and eGaming inspire the real world
This year various exhibitors such as Royal Airforce esports and Royal Army Base Camp took advantage of bringing the virtual and the real world together at IGF by enabling visitors to experience simulations as well as physical experiences such as a climbing wall example.
UK Web Host and Game server hosting provider SeekaHost took on the challenge of bringing the extremely popular Minecraft game to the exhibition by offering a wide range of games and challenges for all age groups through the SeekaHost Minecraft Servers.
They offered quizzes and challenges that everyone could take part in by just using their smartphone and the QR code provided. However, they also offered free gaming on their SeekaHost Minecraft servers and tournaments for the real Minecraft gaming geeks to win a cash prize of £50.
Showcasing high-end eGaming solutions
Because Minecraft is an online game that attracts young and old, SeekaHost offered free Minecraft gaming on their Minecraft servers at the IGF on a first come first serve basis, which proved extremely popular as many visitors waited patiently for their turn.
While they waited, many also took part in the quizzes to win a SeekaHost USB stick or Minecraft tournaments with races, parkours for 1v1 action to win cash prizes on the SeekaHost stage.
Celebrating early excellence
The SeekaHost team, which closely works with the marketing team at ClickDo, celebrated the very young eGaming and Minecraft talents represented at the IGF as they braved the challenges confidently via their social media channels.
Parents and children alike were extremely happy to walk away with a prize as everyone was rewarded for simply giving the challenges a go, so everyone was a winner.
SeekaHost and ClickDo CEO Fernando Raymond, who also attended the festival, commented:
It is fair to say that the event was a big success for gaming enthusiasts and businesses alike, uniting them all in the wonderful world of gaming.
