The Gaming Stadium (TGS) has announced a brand new gaming convention in Vancouver called The Gaming Experience (TGX). Attendees will be able to participate in Pinnacle 2020, Vancouver’s largest annual gaming tournament. Additionally, they can enjoy game studio showcases, an artist alley, retro arcade, vendors and interactive VR exhibitions.

Plus TGX will be Capcom’s Pro Tour, so Street Fighter V will be the main event of TGX.

“When we started running events as TGS in 2018, our goal was always to host the largest esports and gaming convention Vancouver has seen. Our crown jewel for location has always been the Vancouver Convention Centre, and to be able to make this a reality is exciting to say the least,” says Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS. “Jeff Hill and the team at the Convention Centre have been amazing to work with, and their commitment to long-term esports growth in our city is unparalleled. This is a huge opportunity for both us and the Convention Centre but, more importantly, is great for our community. This is the type of event that can put Vancouver esports in a new light, and we are grateful to be the ones to host it.”

“We’re incredibly excited to welcome The Gaming Experience in September and the esports community through our doors,” said Jeff Hill, Sales Manager – Trade, Consumer & Esports, Vancouver Convention Centre. “Vancouver is rife with passionate esports fans and world-class talent, and TGX will be the perfect opportunity to showcase that.”

The Gaming Experience will take place from Sept. 18 to 20 in the West Exhibition Hall at the Vancouver Convention Centre (for Candada). Ticket information for TGX was not shared at the time of this posting.
