Southeast Asia’s Premier Gaming Convention is back! Eliphant as the organizer is excited to announce that GameStart 2019 will return this October in Singapore.

GameStart 2019 will return at Suntec Convention Centre (SCC) Halls 401 to 403 on 12 & 13 October 2019. This year will be the 6th edition for the convention. Last year, the organizer said that they managed to attract 27,000 visitors from around the world, more than double in size and visitorship compared to the first GameStart in 2014.

Every year, GameStart becomes one of the top game conventions that gamers should be visited in Southeast Asia. Last year, they presented some guest lineup such as pro-wrestler Kenny Omega and Overwatch voice actress Elise Zhang. The visitors can try new games from the exhibitors, starting from Disney, WB Games, and some tabletop games.
