EGX 2017 Birmingham NEC

On Friday 22nd September students from Ormiston Meridian Academy ascended on the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham for EGX, the UK’s biggest games event. Students from the faculty of Computing and Business spent the day trying out the latest technologies the gaming industry had to offer as well as getting a preview of some of the most anticipated titles of the year.

Students listened to presentations from a variety of industry leading professionals as well as having the opportunity to find out more about a career in the world of gaming and technology via leading universities.

Many of the students were able to witness first-hand the popularity of E-Sports and a superb event was capped off with the increasingly popular ‘Cosplay’ parade.
