GottaCon 2014 Moves to New Location and New Dates

Hold on to your seats because we are about to tell you the biggest GottaCon news since we launched our event. GottaCon is excited to announce that we are moving, effective our 2014 show, to the Victoria Conference Centre (victoriaconference.com) and changing dates to February 28, March 1 and 2, 2014. GottaCon Conventions was approached by the City of Victoria as well as a representative of the local video game studios to not only move the event to the Victoria Conference Centre but to do it for 2014. Needless to say we were speechless but up to the challenge. We have now met and negotiated the move with the parties involved and we are please to say that it is moving forward…and fast! Mayor Dean Fortin and the City of Victoria are very excited about the potential GottaCon brings to our home town and the benefits this will bring to the local economy. “The video gaming industry is one of the fastest growing segments of the technology sector and is a key element of our local economy”, said Mayor Dean Fortin. “I am very excited that this notable event will take place downtown close to the 19 studios where so much of this creativity is born”. The event will expand to shine a light on the amazing video game studios that can be found all around the Capital Regional District. These fantastic companies are playing a big role in making all this possible. “I think GottaCon is the perfect event to highlight our video game industry.” said Eric Jordan, CEO of DJArts Games. “Gamers are the heart of the video game industry and GottaCon is dedicated to the celebration of games and our community of gamers.” GottaCon would like to say a special thanks to the Victoria Video Game CEO Alliance which consists of DJArts Games, Kixeye, Microsoft Studios, InLight Entertainment, Kano/Apps, GameHouse, Zynga, Tiny Mob Games and Race Rocks 3D. Please bear with us as we are in the early stages of this significant development. We will be working extremely hard to continue to deliver the quality event that you have come to know. Floor plans, website, information packages, etc are all in the process of being updated. We are tremendously excited about this amazing opportunity and we hope you will be too. Please join us February 28, to March 2, 2014 at the Victoria Conference Centre for the best GottaCon yet!

    BYOC LAN update. So far we have 7 teams signed up for CSGO, so if you want to make this event, get your team registered asap as we have a finite amount of space. Also teams are not considered fully registered until all team members have purchased a BYOC..
