Good news for all gaming fans – TikTok is bringing its vibrant world of gaming from the app's For You Feed to ExCeL London at EGX, a flagship industry event drawing in thousands of gamers from across the UK.
For the first time, fans will be able to visit the TikTok #GameTogether booth* and experience a variety of entertaining activations, from live gameplay and competitions, to content capture stations and the chance to meet some of their favourite creators.
For those feeling extra competitive, a daily challenge will see players vie for the highest score in a game of Schildmaid MX (@HitPStudio), exclusively at TikTok booth, with a bunch of HyperX goodies including the Cloud II Wireless headset and Alloy Elite II keyboard up for grabs for the winners**.

Wayne Emanuel, Strategic Gaming Partnerships, Europe at TikTok, said: "Gaming is all about bringing people together, both online and offline, and experiencing the epic moments that make playing video games so enjoyable.
"We're constantly amazed and inspired by our thriving gaming community on TikTok and I can't wait to see that enthusiasm brought to life in the real world at EGX. The #GameTogether booth is not to be missed!"
TikTok's presence at EGX comes after the recent launch of #GameTogether, our first set of livestreamed gaming events where seasoned professional gamers and emerging TikTok creators went head-to-head in some of the world's most popular games, including eFootball PES 2021 and Overcooked.
