Touted as RP’s biggest gaming event, ESGS aims to “combine eSports competition and gaming trade show into one big event,” as previously announced by SMM Philipines’ Event Manager Joebert Yu. Attendees will not only be able to enjoy competitive matches from popular games such as Dota 2 and Hearthstone, but also see and even test upcoming games and gadgets from different gaming companies and indie developers.

While we can expect several Philippine game developers to have booths at ESGS, SMM Philippines will also bring over international game developers to showcase their games. Names like Cherry Credits, Ankama, and Garena will be lending their support to the said summit.
