There has been tears, there has been laughter and a lot of late nights at the office. Finally, we announce the opening of the website http://area08.se/ where tickets will be available for the world’s first ever esports summercamp!
On the second picture above you see the first draft of the area schedule. The ambition with the camp is to allow for networking with people who have the same interests, to give the attendees a skill set that they can benefit from when leaving the camp, to teach them about Code of Conduct and health and finally to have loads of fun while doing so.
Emil ”HeatoN” Christensen who is one of the creators behind this project has this to say about Area08:
”I want it to be everything that I would have needed in that age to get ahead of my peers. I want it to allow for the creation of new teams and clans. Maybe five of the guys that meet at Area will be in the top tier of one of the games in the future, who knows? Our main ambition is to give the participants an exclusive event that they will talk about during the coming year, while waiting for the next Area08. My partner at Area08 who works with Eventosaurus, Andreas Bengtsson, came up with the term ”Tomorrowland feeling” which is sort of what we want for this event. We want it to be something that people look forward to and talk about, but where we surprise them with stuff they could never imagine. Does that make sense?”
For further information about Area08, you can check out the website above, or the Facebook group with the same name.
