Lan party

Gaming the System by Fontys ACI

This panel will focus on the every growing interface between live gaming events (LAN parties) and dance events - particularly those events on the hard dance spectrum. We think that there is a bright future ahead for such events, but how do professionals in the industry think about this topic? We will be looking at this theme from all sides, asking what the opportunities and risks are: how do we avoid diluting the thrill of gaming or raving - indeed, how can the two work in synergy to provide new levels of excitement that can only exist when they are combined?
