EGX Rezzed

Gamer Network’s EGX Rezzed event will light up Tobacco Dock in April 2016.

The event will return to London’s Tobacco Dock venue from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th April, 2016. This year’s show saw 12,000 attendees play games from over 100 exhibitors.

“This year’s EGX Rezzed provided the most positive feedback of any Rezzed show”, said David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events. “Consumers enjoyed the discovery of a new and fascinating venue. Developers enjoyed the opportunity to either customise their own dedicated space or create a zone together with other indiesOne room alone featured over 45 games”.

In addition, BAFTA has renewed its partnership with EGX and the British Academy Games Awards will take place on the first day of the show.

There would be no games industry without the passion and dedication of our players and it makes perfect sense to host our awards and event activity in tandem with EGX Rezzed for 2016″, rejoiced Harvey Elliott, Chairman of BAFTA’s Games Committee.

Everyone seems so happy. And we’re happy too, as this year’s EGX Rezzed was a first class show.

We’re not too sure about the venue, which at its busiest was like a cross between Blade Runner’s Los Angeles and Albert Square, but the focus in independent developers gave the event an intimate feel in comparison to its EGX big brother. Let’s hope that is retained.

Tickets for EGX Rezzed 2016 will go on sale later this year at www.egx.net.
