IGN Convention comes to Doha
Update: we’ve posted a more recent update to the IGN Convention event in Qatar, which you can read here.
What do you get when you take IGN (one of the world’s most popular gaming sites), mix it with video games and other geeky items, and add some Middle East cities? The next edition of the IGN Convention 2014 that will be held in Dubai, Bahrain, and Doha (for the first time).
The 2014 edition of the convention looks to bring together video games, movies, and art with fans flocking to see prominent gaming athletes and many activities for 2 days. The dates haven’t been set yet, but the city of Doha has been confirmed as one of the hosts.
Workshops, cosplay competitions, panels on movies and gaming, video game tournaments, and gaming announcements will fill up the schedule for that time period. With Doha’s young crowd already vying for a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, they would definitely welcome such a major name coming to their city with a big event. The reception has been positive since their casual announcement about the Doha chapter with their Facebook event page and IGN Middle East are sharing details as they announce them. The website is still showing details on last year’s Convention in Bahrain, and we expect them to update it once dates and venue have been finalised.
Watch this space for updates. In the mean time you can see our coverage of the convention in Dubai last year
