A couple of our members will be attending Digiexpo in Helsinki, Finland this weekend. The fair is held 4.-6.11.2011 at Helsingin Messukeskus, close to Pasila station. We'll be hanging around at Pelaaja booth on Saturday 5th at 15:00 CET together with the editor of Finnish World of Warcraft magazine "WOW-lehti". Come and meet us there!
Digiexpo is the biggest fair in Finland concentrating on consumer electronics. As previous years, this year will also feature a lot of high level e-sports tournamets played at the stage, including an ASUS ROG Starcraft 2 tournament with some big names turning up.
