Salt Lake Gaming Con was an explosive event. Video games, gamers, tournaments, cosplayers and gaming lifestyle were some of the highlights. It's only in it's second year, but the energy and attendance was twice as much as last year. SLC GamingCon is a force to be reckoned with. Especially in the coming years via it's partnership with Salt Lake Comic Con.
Gamers from all over the state of Utah and surrounding states took to the floor to compete in a wide variety of tournaments. Overwatch, LoL, Rocket League and Smash were big hits at the event. What was really exciting for us here at Mainframe is how the community embraced our Gaming Sleeve.
We teamed up with SLC Gaming Con to do a colab of our gaming sleeve as well as introduce our latest style - the all black Contender sleeve. You could not walk through the sea of people in attendance without spotting our sleeves. The crew over at Microsoft and all of their volunteers were kitted out and loved them. The Microsoft store has been so involved with promoting and supporting the gaming community. They host loads of tournaments in stores and at events. They have embraced the Mainframe brand and we have plans to team up for later events and tournaments.
Lines of people formed at our booth looking for the "Gaming sleeve". Hoards of gamers playing in tournaments across the floor were outfitted in Mainframe sleeves. It was a proud moment for the Mainframe Crew to see the gaming sleeve so fully embraced by the gaming community.
Gaming and Cosplay go hand in hand. We had some pretty awesome cosplayers come by the booth and say hello. A local homie Dez hung out and talked about games, cosplays and nerdcore favorites. Our friends Ash & Roadhog stopped by. This RD main was one of the best Roadhog's we've seen. He had a custom homemade plaster mask with matching tattoo to round out the look, it was perfect and photo worthy. Widow Maker and a gender-bender Genji also stopped by the booth, showing the Mainframe Crew some Overwatch love.
We are excited to be a part of the Salt Lake Gaming Con going forward. Both brands planted their roots here in Salt Lake in the same year. That makes for a special heritage that we look forward to sharing for many years to come!
