ESPORTS festival – ECHOSLAM – Asia’s first eSports, Cosplay, Music, and Entertainment festival was recently launched amidst much fanfare. The festival is an initiative by Dome Entertainment Pvt. – A Cineyug Group Enterprise and NODWIN Gaming.
The Pan-India festival is the first-of-its-kind festival and it promises a mix of Professional and Casual Gamers, International Celebrity Gamers Competition, Cosplay Competition and the best of entertainment – Celebrity DJs and Stand – Up Comedy acts over a period of 4 months with a Grand Finale and prizes worth INR 25 lacs to be won.
Speaking on the new initiative Suprit Karkera, Business Head, Events & IP, Dome Entertainment Pvt Ltd said, “We realized that the Indian Events space is overcrowded and saturated with Concerts and Events which is Celebrity led, expensive for fans, forced sponsor to connect and has very little experience to offer to fans. Therefore based on our research, expertise, insights and under the leadership of Mazhar Nadiadwala, we decided to create ECHOSLAM which is purely experience and memories led. Associating with Nodwin Gaming for our first experience under the IP vertical enables us to bring together our combined expertise and best practices to create a festival that aspires to deliver a memorable experience for all.’’
Speaking on the collaboration Akshat Rathee, Founder & Managing Director of NODWIN Gaming says, “We believe that the upcoming Echoslam event, being held across India, with its finale in Mumbai, is absolutely unique, with a horde of new experiences. NODWIN Gaming is proud to partner up with Dome Entertainment, to make this event a reality. We believe that Echoslam is also aligned with NODWIN’s core philosophy of innovation, creativity, and collaboration, as we expect it to usher in a new era for eSports, music, and performance arts.”
As per reports, the Indian gaming market was estimated at $338.4 million in revenue in 2017 and is expected to grow to $1.1 billion in 2021, as a result of rapid growth in smartphone penetration and very low data charges. This makes it the perfect time for the ECHOSLAM festival, which is both disruptive and dynamic.
