Alongside COD: Mobile, the event will feature a number of fighting game competitions and an ESL Challenger CS:GO tournament.
Blomberg has amassed a credible resume throughout his career within the video games and live events industry. Notbaly he has been a Director across events such as E3, PAX, Comic-Con and EGX. Bloomberg has been a member of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA) Board of Directors for over a year.
