This weekend saw Insomnia55 take place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, featuring the UK’s biggest line-up of eSports tournaments, live shows from Youtube’s biggest stars and the most anticipated games of 2015, and I spoke to Multiplay Founder and CEO Craig Fletcher about it.
Insomnia55, powered by GAME, featured more live ‘Lets Play’s’, more exhibition booth gaming, and more interactive gaming content than any Insomnia event to-date. Other regular returning features included the 24hr BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer / Console) LAN areas, the Minecraft zone, Panel Talks, the Indie Zone, the Retro Zone, the Tabletop Gaming Zone, and the burgeoning Retail zone.
The impressive growth of the Insomnia series saw Insomnia55 expand with four external Marquees raised to provide an additional 8000sqm space for the UK’s biggest and fastest growing gaming festival.
Craig Fletcher is the Founder and CEO of Multiplay, and I sat down with him to find out all about Insomnia and what some of their plans are for the future, so over to Craig:
