North American esports operator Luminosity Gaming has partnered with experiential technology company BIG Digital to develop an innovative first-of-its-kind interactive gaming activation and experience, with the first event taking place recently at Bud Light Dreams Festival on June 29 and 30, 2019.
Dreams is a two-day, three-stage outdoor sensorial celebration of Toronto’s music and arts community. Luminosity, well known for its overwhelming success in engaging with esports and gaming fans, landed at Dreams with its mobile tour that included interactive touchscreen gameplay, on-site gaming stations and merchandise sales.
Steve Maida, founder and president of Luminosity Gaming, commented: “We believe there is a massive intersection of fans between the worlds of gaming and music. Our launch and presence at Dreams validated that belief. We received an overwhelmingly positive response throughout the weekend and can’t wait to replicate this success at other events in the future.”
BIG and Luminosity say they are building programs and products that educate brand partners and provide an easy entry point to connect with Luminosity audiences.
Michael Girgis, co-founder of BIG Digital, explained further: “The intent is to provide the esports experience to a wider range of audience groups. A key aspect was designing mobile and flexible structures for customizing the experience. The combination of gaming containers and digital technology, including a giant LED billboard and pop-up digital screens, featured Luminosity content that showcased team and player segments as well as a curated social conversation to festival attendees. A Wi-Fi network enabled mobile contesting and further interactions and engagement by the attendees.”
