WHAT IS DIGICON ?
Digital Gathering was built on the foundation of bringing together every aspect of digital entertainment for consumers to read about. We, here at Digital Gathering, aim to cover as wide a variety of topics as possible to cater our variety of readers. While at the office, we put our heads together and decided we would go one better than just writing about these things for you; we decided to let you experience them first hand. We’re bringing them straight to your doorstep. DigiCon is here to showcase some of the digital communities leading brands while allowing you a chance to purchase them, right here, in the capital of Wales, this being where the Digital Gathering team is based.
DigiCon has one important goal; to bring some of the industries finest to give you, the consumer, a hands on experience. The DigiCon booth alone will consist of amazing products from AstroGaming, GTomega and Thrustmaster amongst others. More information on this will be released at a later date.
Digital Gathering has introduced DigiCon to cover all forms of digital entertainment in every aspect of the entertainment culture. To us, it does not matter if you prefer the retro scene, or the newest line of gadgets, or titles, Digicon is sure to have something for you.
It’s a sure thing that DigiCon will give you the opportunity to get a feel for selected collectors’ items that the industry has to offer. The Digital Gathering team is looking to cover every base, to let Cardiff and the rest of Wales see more conventions and collectors fairs, which we all agree, there aren't enough of. Cool collectables are highly sought after; there will be plenty on display for you to experience and even take home.
There are a lot of local and independent businesses out there, that sadly, people don’t have enough time to check out. DigiCon is here to bring them all under one roof and have them rub shoulders with some of the industry’s biggest names. We are working in hand with Indigo Pearl to bring you as much as possible, and what brilliant timing, just before Christmas. Maybe you can treat yourself to that extra special present this year.
But most importantly, no party is a party without yours truly, so I shall definitely be there along with the whole Digital Gathering team. We’re going to be there to mingle with all you lovely people on top of making sure that you enjoy yourselves thoroughly. We hope that this shall be the first DigiCon of many. Excitement is palpable here at the Digital Gathering office. We hope that this shall provide a solid starting block for everything we’ve worked so hard towards and will hopefully be a great success for all involved.
