West African Gaming Exhibition, WAGE, is a yealy technology conference and exhibition event in hosted in Lagos, Nigeria which features animation, video / mobile games and related products.
It is a mix of fun and learning as it the event strategically showcases the African gaming culture alongside indigeneous creations like Gidirun, a Nigerian version of temple run among other creations in animation and games from other African nations.
One major major attraction of the event is the fusion of the eSport industry in the event.
Esport is gradually gaining grounds in Africa and not many game publishers and companies have been able to take economic advantage of this as most are scared of the uncertainty of the Return on Investment.
Organisers of West African Gaming Expo have been promoting the industry for four straight years and have been able to involve the Lagos State government alongside key players in the Continent.
I was very surprised when I saw their backers this year. It is certain that WAGE is here to stay.
Sponsors of WAGE 18
I believe Scorum can take advantage of this event to publicise the betting platform and other interesting ideas they want to pitch to the massive attendees of this event. I hope they do this.
If possible, a Scorum squad can form up to play the games at the event.
