Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Esports Management Group (EMG), the leading esports event organizer in the UAE, is excited to announce the return of its highly-anticipated EMG 2023 Gaming Festival from December 8th-10th, 2023. 

Taking place at ADNEC – Marina Hall in Abu Dhabi, this year’s festival promises to be the biggest in the series. It is poised to offer an extensive array of captivating experiences, catering to a wide audience, ranging from thrilling competitive arenas to a dedicated haven designed especially for young gamers aged seven and under.

The festival’s standout feature undoubtedly revolves around its two gaming zones. The first, “Play to Chill,” is a dedicated space for PC and PlayStation 5 enthusiasts. Here, casual gamers can immerse themselves in two free-to-play arenas, fully loaded with the latest and most popular games currently available in the market. 

On the other hand, “Play to Win” serves as the battleground for fierce competitors. In this zone, participants will be ignited with fervour as they engage in a variety of popular titles such as PUBG, EAFC24, Rocket League, Fortnite, Valorant, and many others. Throughout the festival’s duration, a remarkable opportunity awaits up to 500 individuals, granting them the chance to emerge victorious and claim hundreds of prizes along the way.

Additionally, a third zone has been designated to accommodate those who favor dancing to contemporary music over traditional gaming.
