In fact, in Italy the gaming industry has 160 companies, 1,600 employees (of which 79% are under 36 years old), 90 million euros in turnover. It is still a young industry, but with significant growth and innovation rates as well as with a natural international vocation, given that 94% of the turnover of companies and professionals operating in the development of consumer video games comes from the international market.

Acer will provide participants with PCs and monitors from its comprehensive offering for the gaming world. First of all, the range of Predator devices, which meets all the needs of hardcore gamers, with PCs and monitors designed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.
