The Video Games Club of America website listed the purpose of the event. “Allow students the opportunity to meet and connect with gaming industry insiders. Help students connect socially through gaming,” the website read. “Grant students the ability to talk directly with potential colleges and career fields. Help students gain insight into the world of Esports and potential career and college programs.”
The event was put on by the Video Game Clubs of America and the University of Texas at El Paso esports team “The Honey Badgers.”
