EGLX is ready to rock Canada again in October


Canada’s largest video game expo is back

Round five and it’s only getting better. Fresh on the heels of the fourth EGLX last October, Destructoid’s parent company Enthusiast Gaming already has number five set in stone.

The 2020 Enthusiast Live Gaming Expo will once again take place in downtown Toronto in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from October 16 through October 18. The Destructoid robot will be partying there, and some of your favorite Destructoid editors will be partying there. If you’ve ever wanted to go to a Destructoid convention, this is as close as it gets. It still blows my mind seeing our robot on the front page of the show’s official magazine.

EGLX is Canada’s largest video game expo, and it just keeps growing. Last year, EGLX brought together 30,000-some attendees and 202 exhibitors. The 2020 version will see the return of the Rising Stars esports competition with a $30,000 prize pool, plenty of panels and talks (like the live interview with Assassin’s Creedcreator Patrice Desilets that Jordan and I hosted last year), and appearances from the Luminosity Gaming esports team. Also, like any good convention, there will be a ton of video games to play.

Check out the gallery below if you’re looking for a sample of the EGLX vibe. (Also, a Destructoid plushie that I couldn’t resist throwing in.) If it seems like your scene, be on the lookout for tickets to go on sale later this year. We’d love to party with you.
