After a successful first year, NOLA Gaming Fest is back and slated for 18-19 at the Pontchartrain Convention & Civic Center. It will bring together thousands of casual gamers, pro-amateur gamers, game makers, and anyone else that considers themselves part of the gaming community.
The Fest is hosted by Independent Gaming League, an organization based in D.C. with ties to New Orleans whose mission is to bring people together to learn, compete, and play. The company was co-founded by Joe Corbett, a former Big Easy resident who was one of the driving factors behind launching NOLATech Week.
Part of the festival includes a number of tournaments. “Instead of recreating, reconfiguring, or repurposing an already-vibrant gaming community, we simply invited the area’s best gaming event organizers to program a variety of tournaments for the games you love to play and compete in,” explains organizers.
Additionally, the Fest has partnered with High Voltage Software to build out a virtual reality lounge. Attendees will get a chance to try out their new titles in a comfortable setting.
