GAME and Multiplay Team Up For UK’s Biggest Gaming Festival

1 st August 2013 The UK’s leading video games retailer, Game Retail Ltd, is teaming up with global games service provider Multiplay to support the UK’s gaming community at Multiplay’s Insomnia UK Gaming events.

Whether it’s huge eSports Tournaments on PC and Consoles with thousands of pounds to be won, an Exhibition Hall bursting at the seams with the latest games & technology, or simply a group of friends coming together to enjoy the games they love; the Insomnia “iSeries” festival has long been a social hub for the UK gaming community.

Commencing with Insomnia 49, which takes places over the August Bank Holiday weekend (23-26 August), GAME will be the official retail partner for Insomnia for the following year, providing expert staff and a whole range of stock to give Insomnia attendees a destination for all their gaming needs throughout the weekend.

Whether gamers want to enjoy earning GAME Reward points on Steam Credit top-ups, grab a new console game or PC game code for GAME’s PC Download store, or pick up high-spec accessories for a competitive advantage, attendees won’t need to leave the event, or look further than the GAME stand at Insomnia.

Craig Ting, Community Manager, Game Retail Ltd, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Multiplay to support the UK gaming community at the gamer’s equivalent of Glastonbury this August and beyond. Multiplay has a long heritage in working closely with the UK gaming community, listening to its needs and delivering on community ideas and feedback.  Coupled with GAME’s ambition to grow and support the UK’s most valuable community of gamers, we can’t wait to get started in supporting Insomnia in both a retail and community capacity.”

Craig Fletcher, Managing Director, Multiplay added:

“We’re thrilled to be working with GAME and are excited about what this partnership means for our attendees for Insomnia 49 and beyond. Teaming up with the UK’s number one gaming retailer allows us to engage our loyal community with some fantastic show offers. Having them on-site means that attendees can play even more games and take part in high stakes tournaments.”
