We are really proud and excited about sponsoring two lucky Afrigamers to travel to Cologne, Germany this year, to attend Gamescom with the good folks at El33tOnline.
Our lucky winners, David and Matei, were treated to a whirlwind trip, starting with a guided tour of the sights and sounds (and flavours) Cologne, one of the largest and oldest German cities. Thereafter it was off to the world’s largest games event, along with over 275,000 visitors, journalist and exhibitors from the biggest international game distributors.
David and Matei were treated to an exclusive behind the scenes press tour, and had a chance to see and demo the latest that the gaming world has to offer. Once they had touched down back in good old SA, the guys had only positive things to say about their experience.
“The city itself was amazing. I really enjoyed sampling the local cuisine and beer” said David. “We managed to get some cool game memorabilia and some awesome T-shirts”
“My favourite experience at Gamescom was the overall atmosphere of the event. I’ve never been to an event of that size before or seen so many gamers in one place, so that was overwhelming.” Matei commented.
The guys from El33tOnline couldn’t have been happier with the choice of winners, as David and Matei are both avid gamers. They were the perfect additions to the team as they witnessed and participated in the demos, live match events and all of the fanfare from the event.
“We are truly happy that Afrihost could be a part of this wonderful experience for these two Afrigamers, and we’re glad that their experience was nothing short of AMAZING!!” said Tyler Theron, Afrihost’s Brand Manager. “ With our proposed network change, we’re hoping to continue to delight and amaze our Afrigamers with more value and exciting competitions. Starting with our sponsorship and participation in rAge 2012 this year.”
Congratulations again to our lucky Afrigamers!!!
