Join us on the long weekend to meet some of our amazing streamers, professional players and podcast personalities, as well as surprise guest speakers from all over Aotearoa. At this event you will be able to play alongside some of our streaming talent as they broadcast live on twitch or even take on one of our best players on stage for chances at winning prizes. Experience HADO - The worlds’ first augmented reality ‘TECHNO-SPORT' taking the world by storm. Join in on live podcast sessions and seminars about the future of esports in New Zealand and how we’re shaping it.

Ian “LAN” Seaton, CEO & Director of Shadownet -
“Esports has been something I have been living and breathing for the last 7-8 years of my life, I have experienced esports all around the world and we’re not that far off the mark. I want to take New Zealand’s scene in its entirety all the way up and show everyone across the globe that we can be world class talent. I want everyone to share this passion.”
