Skyesports Announces India Gaming Show 2024

India’s gaming industry is expanding at an unprecedented pace, to the point that it is now being used to commemorate the nation’s diplomatic connections with other countries. Recently, India and Indonesia celebrated 75 years of diplomatic connections. To mark this historic milestone, Skyesports and the Indonesian Embassy in New Delhi are organising an esports tournament between the two countries.

This is scheduled to happen during the 6th India Gaming Show 2024 in Pune, India, from March 14 to March 16. The Confederation of Indian Industry will feature infotainment, gaming, and animation at this event. Both will square off in an esports match at the Skyesports Grand Slam. It will be an incredible showcase battle between the best Counter Strike 2 teams in both countries.
