On April 11-12, Smile-Expo will organize the sixth festival of gaming and geek culture called WEGAME at the Kyiv-based International Exhibition Centre.

The event is growing in size year by year, attracting more and more industry-specific companies and game fans. WEGAME 6.0 will once again offer the well-loved esports tournaments, the cosplay show, and the awards ceremony for indie developers. Besides, our team plans to add new kinds of entertainment.

Six locations of WEGAME 6.0

This year, the festival’s venue will include six main locations where every attendee will find contests and activities for his liking.

  • Indie developers will present game projects in the AWARDS ZONE. The best of them will also compete for the WEGAME Award. The expert jury will select winners in seven nominations and attendees will shape the destiny of the eighth category – the Audience Award.
  • The cosplay contest will take place in the COSPLAY ZONE without any restrictions in characters. Original cosplayers will show off on the main stage along with the cosplayers of games, films, series, books, and comics. The cosplay show of WEGAME 6.0 will award winners in five nominations. Judges will select the best performance, craft, and image. Besides, there will be the Audience Award and the Organizer’s Award.

New ARG quest and big Gift Marathon

At the past WEGAME festival, we hosted an ARG quest for the first time. Its participants fulfilled tasks in one of the five classes on the territory of the festival and online. This year, we have decided to update the quest by adding cool prizes, many surprises, and pleasant unexpected things.

Everyone loves presents! For this reason, we have launched a large-scale Gift Marathon. It is very simple to participate in the draw – all you need to do is to buy a ticket to WEGAME 6.0. The earlier you buy the ticket, the more gifts you can get. Overall, it is planned that the Gift Marathon will consist of six stages and one big draw. Gifts will be getting more and more valuable at every next stage. The winner in the first stage will be chosen on February 24.

We keep advancing and expanding the program of the festival.
