Why You Can't Afford to Miss Dublin Game Festival

Every year on 24 November, game lovers gather to discover and participate in the latest and most popular gaming options. In the last festival, more than 3,000 people gathered for the Dublin Games Festival (DGF) to be part of what has become one of Ireland’s most highly anticipated gaming events. Each year, the organisers aim to provide more entertainment and more access which makes for a bigger and better festival every year. This is done with the support of sponsors who understand and appreciate the gaming market and wish to be a part of promoting it.

Some of the sponsors of the Dublin Game Festival in past festivals are Trust Gaming, Monster Energy, Marvin.ie, 8-Bit Conference and Four Star Pizza. The brands have supported various events throughout Dublin that have culminated in the big, main festival. They offer their support in different ways.

The Difference Dublin Games Festival Sponsors Make

The ever-popular Four Star Pizza has provided sponsorship in the form of engaging activation at the festival. Their staff welcomes those going into the expo area with a showcase of a new interactive mobile platform that event participants can play that is based on the brand’s product offerings.

On this game, players can collect toppings for different pizzas. This gets more challenging as the game progresses to higher levels. High scorers get a token they can redeem at the brand’s stand at the festival. There’s also a chance to spin the wheel for prizes that range from pizza vouchers to gaming gear.

Another sponsor, Monster Energy is well known for its brand awareness and activation campaigns. This brand comes in by bringing favourites like YouTube gaming legend Wizzite to the event, hosting a Call of Duty (COD) gaming hut and offering free energy drinks at the ‘Energy Entrance’.
