Since establishing the Blizzard label in 1994, the company has quickly become one of the most popular and well-respected makers of computer games. Most recently, the company has earned monumental followings through titles like StarCraft 2, Hearthstone, and Overwatch. With numerous popular game titles in eSports leagues around the world and a huge streaming and gaming community behind them, Blizzard China wanted to hold an Annual Awards Ceremony to commemorate these loyal fans.

Our Solution

External Interactive Missions: In order to encourage activity and create attendee engagement, the eight missions were focused on finding the correct attractions within the Blizzard World by utilizing the map to complete missions.
Since the awards stage and the stage for the Grand Finals were one in the same, a multipurpose stage was needed transition between games and awards. After the matches concluded on the 3rd of January, the stage was altered to suit the awards ceremony. Guidance was also provided to attending influencers for everything from costume preparation, hotels and even the red carpet proceedings.
