Level up, gamers. Something epic is coming to Alberta and it’ll be here to stay for a good, long time.

Game Con Canada (GCC), the largest event of its kind here in the Great North, will take place in Edmonton this spring and the two that follow!

Powered by TELUS, this massive convention will be packed with action, community building and entertainment – but that’s hardly all.

As the only Canadian gaming convention to have been recognized internationally, this incredible experience could see a crowd of over 40,000 people.

From e-sports to role-playing games, attendees will be encouraged to participate in tournaments, rub shoulders with celebrities and can win thousands of dollars in prize money.

“GCC is proud to have the support of industry-leading sponsors such as Intel, Razer, MSI, ESIO, Explore Edmonton, Roxley Games, Dice Throne, Catalyst Games Lab, LF Gaming, NorQuest College, NAIT, TELUS and more,” they wrote.

“Their commitment to innovation and gaming excellence ensures that GCC delivers a world-class experience for all attendees.”

What’s more, this event will be fantastic for the city!
