Montreal will be hosting its first Video Game tournament on May 27 and 28. The École de Technologie together with McGill University are launching this first edition of this video game challenge.
Video games will be played outdoors in public on a giant projection screen. There will also be kiosks on-site offering demos versions of upcoming games.
The event will take place in the parking lot of the old Planetarium site right in the city centre.
This is an exciting project for the city of Montreal! It is unique and the only tournament of its kind in all of Canada.
Many may not be aware that Montreal is second to San Francisco for having the most video game companies in the world! Applicants from all over the world apply for positions within this industry right here in Montreal.
We encourage anyone traveling to Montreal to work in the video game industry to brush up on your English and French skills with EC Montreal. We offer a wide variety of French and English courses in Montreal!
