rAge, South Africa’s biggest gaming and technology expo, will once again take place from 28 to 30 September 2007 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate. It is the fifth year the event will take place.
It has attracted year-on-year growth of 30% in both exhibitor and public attendance, and it is expected that rAge will improve on track record with an expected attendance of over 18 000 visitors in 2007.
In addition, up to 2 000 gamers are expected to participate in the NAG “Bring Your Own Computer” LAN.
This growth is indicative that gaming and related technologies are big news and are enjoying an ever-increasing awareness and enthusiastic support from gamers, students, executives, families and even attract corporate interest. In fact, globally, gaming is now a bigger industry than music, film and video.
