Miniminter and Syndicate will appear at Middle East Games Con next month.
Get ready to geek out: two of the biggest gamers on YouTube are heading to Abu Dhabi for Middle East Games Con.
British stars Miniminter and Syndicate will fly in for the event at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from Thursday October 25 to Saturday October 27. You’ll be able to watch the streamers play against each other – and even take them on yourself – live on stage.
Miniminter, real name Simon Minter, is best known for his FIFA videos and vlogs, while Syndicate, real name Tom Cassell, is behind the gaming channel TheSyndicateProject which has 10 million subscribers.
The pair will be joined by other big names including regional pro game team Nasr Esports, the voice actors of Mercy (Overwatch) and Geralt of Rivia (The Witcher), and entertainment acts including beatboxers and samurai sword performers.
Fans of Japanese culture can also look forward to a sub-festival called ‘Anifest’ – a special area dedicated to anime, manga, Japanese cinema, music, games, fashion and food.
There will also be a cosplay catwalk, gaming workshops, an indie developer showcase, game design gallery and product launches, with more guests and activities to be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets start from Dhs115.50 and are on sale via Platinum List, UAE Exchange and 7eleven stores across the UAE.
