SKOAR! 2006 announced to seduce gaming enthusiasts

Following the tremendous success of the SKOAR! 2005 live online gaming event, organised by Jasubhai Digital Media, where over 9,000 gaming enthusiasts took part on the first day of the two-day event, the event will be back in 2006 to enthral gaming enthusiasts again. The event in 2005 had brought together some of the leading developers, publishers, hardware manufactures and gamers from the gaming community.

The expo in 2005 had showcased the latest offerings from some of the most renowned names in the gaming industry and was a platform for industry players to interact with their users and increase awareness among the gaming public at large.

The highlight of the show was ‘What The Frag! LAN Party’, which was a hit among all participants as were the PC gaming and multi-PC networked multimedia gaming that showcased some of the hottest games like ‘Unreal Tournament 2004’, ‘Painkiller’ and big-screen gaming where games like ‘Need for Speed’ received tremendous response.

Announcing the SKOAR! 2006 games, Maulik Jasubhai, CEO and Publisher, Jasubhai Digital Media, said, “The unprecedented success of SKOAR! 2005, exemplified by the surging public response and highly satisfied exhibitors, has enthused us to go the next level of this effort.”

He added, “With SKOAR! 2005 we wanted to change the paradigm of ‘expos’, where companies do not display their products but rather where the users play. SKOAR! 2006 will start where the 2005 event left off. It will be more intense with greater interactivity on gaming platforms, we will endeavour to conduct multi-geographic gaming competitions, and we will have the most cutting edge technology ‘on play’ for the Indian consumers.”

The event ended with enquiries from large foreign potential participants for the forthcoming SKOAR! 2006. SKOAR! 2005 had attracted close to 30,000 visitors.
