LAN Gaming Weekend

Description

Moving to a new venue has allowed us to realise a long held ambition and bring LAN gaming to Concord!

Whilst we can’t replicate all the eSports shows and events that come with the bigger LAN’s, we can give you a Saturday and Sunday LAN, in a conference centre setting, with free admission to the rest of the games convention at a fraction of the price.

Includes:

  • Entry into Concord LAN
  • Entry into Concord Gaming Convention
  • A 3ft wide space on a 2ft deep desk to set up your PC
  • 1 x Ethernet Cable
  • 1 x Power Socket
  • 1 x Standard Conference Centre Chair

You will be expected to bring your own:

  • 1 x PC
  • 1 x Surge protected power bar
  • Anti-theft equipment

 

Timetable

Saturday:

  • 06:00 – 08:00: Early Check – You are free to arrive at this time, and get set up and playing.
  • 08:00 – 10:00: Peak Check In – You are welcome to check in at this time, but this is when the convention will be opening and convention guests arriving, there may be queues.

Sunday: 

  • 21:00: Close – You need to have checked out by this point.

FAQ’s

What is considered to be 1 x PC?

For the purposed of your ticket, one PC can be either;

1 x desktop unit, 1 x monitor, 1 x mouse, 1 x headphones

OR

1 x laptop, 1 x monitor, 1 x mouse, 1 x headphones

 

Can I bring other accessories?

If you want, you may bring:

  • Stream Keys
  • Fairy Lights
  • Your own chair

Do not bring:

  • Speakers

What are the security arrangements?

The same as any decent sized organised LAN.

You will be issued with 3 serialised stickers. You will be encouraged to put one sticker on your PC, one on your monitor, and the other on your lanyard. All bags will be checked on the way in and out of the room. You will not be allowed to remove any computer equipment unless you and the equipment have matching stickers.

Given the smaller numbers here than at bigger LANs, those worried they may lose their sticker may present Photo ID when they book in. Should you lose your sticker, if you have provided photo ID against your serial number, we will be able to check your equipment against your ID. If you don’t provide photo ID, you will need to wait until the end of the day on Sunday.

What Facilities does the Holiday Inn Provide?

You will have your 3ft x 2ft space at a desk, and a standard chair (unless you have brought your own). You will have one power socket, so you will need to bring an extension lead. (4 socket or 6 socket is fine. Please try to avoid bringing an 8 socket with you.)  The internet speed into the conference centre is:
