One of the biggest gaming conventions in Southeast Asia is coming to the Philippines on October 26, 2018. The E-Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS) is a conference event of everything that involves video games. For a gamer, it is one of the few events that can give them the latest “ins” of the industry. ESGS will take place in the SMX Convention Center near the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. The event lasts from October 26-28 with a Super Early Bird promo of P150 per day! If you miss the Super Early Bird promo, you can still catch up for the Early Bird promo of P180 or the Regular Rate of P210.
What to expect in this year’s ESGS?

As always, the event will feature numerous spectacles from various gaming exhibitors. However, unlike any other ESGS, this year’s summit will be headlined by the great Kojima Productions! For those unfamiliar with (THE) Kojima Productions, this is the company that has brought us the amazing Metal Gear franchise. While it is unsure if Hideo Kojima himself will be attending this year’s ESGS, it is sure to expect that his team has much in stall for the audience to view. Other major exhibitors also include Brazen, Hyper X, and our very own Synergy 88 Digital. More is said to come and will be announced later on so make sure to keep yourself updated.
Another expectation for this year’s ESGS is the gaming industry’s latest hardware developments. For one, expect to see new CPU rigs that are not only sturdily crafted but also beautifully designed. Companies will also be featuring booths for gamers to play with or against one another. That being said, expect some serious competition from even the most casual players. Just like almost any geeky event, there will be some cosplay associated so make sure to bring your smartphones, cameras, or even a costume of your own! Lastly, don’t forget to expect new and exclusive games. What’s a gaming summit without new games? Probably just a summit. With Kojima Productions in the bigger picture, all that is left for us is to wonder what they have for disclosure.
Tickets are available in all SM Cinema outlets nationwide! October 1 marks the beginning of regular rates so it is advised to buy earlier in order to take advantage of the discounts. The Super Early Bird promo lasts until the end of July, while the Early Bird promo ends on the last day of September.
