The One Point has agreed to provide the much-needed connectivity for the region's premier digital gaming event, Platform 2012. The event would not go ahead without a high level of data connectivity being brought into the Hull University Venue - currently unavailable by any other source.
Darren Sunley, Director of Communications for The One Point, said, "The venue will require a massive amount of connectivity to ensure the 24-hour gaming showcase happens. The One Point has several different broadband delivery methods - this project once again showcases The One Point capabilities."
The Platform Expos are gaming and entertainment events with a difference. The digital sector is dynamic, innovative and fast-paced. It provides primary entertainment and communications for millions around the world and, at the same time, stands out as a sustainable and prosperous business category.
The Platform Expos combine education and business to demonstrate how we can work together to build even greater success via lectures, seminars, and venture capital.
The global digital gaming and entertainment industry is one such success story. With global sales in digital gaming alone valued at $70 billion (source BBC News), this industry has the growth trajectory to double over the next five years. In the UK Market, the gaming sector has annual sales more significant than the combined sales of both DVD and Cinema.
