Play Expo & Colombo Comic Expo, Sri Lanka’s largest games, technology & cosplay expo this weekend

Gamer.LK, the premier digital entertainment agency in Sri Lanka has announced Play Expo & Colombo Comic Expo 2023, a landmark event set to revolutionise the Games, Esports, pop-culture and digital entertainment landscape in the country. Scheduled for the 9th and 10th of December 2023 at the Sri Lanka Exhibition & Convention Center (SLECC), this marks the first time the event is being organised since the pandemic, signaling a significant resurgence in digital entertainment in the island.

Play Expo builds upon the esteemed legacy of the Sri Lanka Cyber Games – the first major Esports tournament series in the country which began in 2008, and heralds a new era in the country’s Esports journey. The event will feature an array of over 20 popular Esports titles which include team games such as Free Fire, PUBG MOBILE, Call of Duty Mobile, Mobile Legends, Valorant, League of Legends, DOTA 2 and many more including individual titles such as Mortal Kombat 1, Tekken 7, Clash Royale, F1 23, FC 24 (FIFA) and more. The tournament has been endorsed by the Sri Lanka Esports Association and the results contribute to the national player rankings opening up opportunities for winners to be enlisted for national Esports team roster consideration.

The event also includes the Colombo Comic Expo (CCx), a celebration of geek and pop-culture which brings together the largest gathering of cosplayers in Sri Lanka for the cosplay ramp walk. Since 2013, Gamer.LK has promoted cosplay in Sri Lanka, offering a safe platform for participants to display their creativity and skills in costumes and skits. CCx also hosts an Artists Alley, spotlighting Sri Lanka’s independent artists and enabling attendees to buy unique artwork directly from them, thus supporting the local art community.

This year’s event features Gamer.LK’s Creator Connect, Sri Lanka’s largest gathering for content creators from various fields, including artists, musicians, game streamers, and vloggers. They will interact with fans and participate in panels and entertainment skits. Organized by Gamer.LK with TikTok as the official entertainment partner, Creator Connect aims to celebrate the evolving digital content creation landscape in Sri Lanka.

“We are incredibly excited to kick start the next era of Esports and digital entertainment in the country with Play Expo 2023 which will become the biggest youth expo in the country and a melting pot of talent and innovation. Our journey, which began with the Sri Lanka Cyber Games in 2008, has now evolved into a vibrant and inclusive platform for gamers, cosplayers, artists, and content creators. I’m proud of the role Gamer.LK has played in shaping this landscape and excited for the opportunities this event will unlock for our local talent on a global stage.”, said Raveen Wijayatilake, CEO and Founder of Gamer.LK, sharing his excitement about the event.
