The actions of the two days take place on three main stages (Main Stage, Esports Stage and New Games Stage) and within them will take place esports competitions, tournaments organized by the most appreciated creators of content and many other activities.
"We want Bucharest Gaming Week to be the mirror of the entire universe that has made video games the most accessed form of entertainment in the world, surpassing the film and music industry. In this event we are not just talking about pure entertainment, about new game launches or esports competitions. We're also talking about what's behind the games, the art and the storytelling that's so important in building these video stories. Or about the studies that young people should follow in order to get to have a career in the game development industry. We applaud for this reason the Goethe Institute and the French Institute that joined us in this endeavor and which, next to us, brought much relevant content from German and French creators. Thanks to them, we will talk a lot about art during Bucharest Gaming Week," said Tudor Daescu, president of Gaming Week, the organizer of the event.
