eSports and video games are usually an at home activity, so we think you’d love to get up from your computer and explore the world of technology and gaming in a different way.
Insomnia Gaming Festival will take over Birmingham’s NEC for a weekend long event featuring all the latest games, voice actors, merch, and technology. With workshops, talks and competitions there’s something for everyone no matter what kind of games they play. I'll be there, will you?
If you can stay around until the last day often exhibitors give away spare stuff off their stands.
