Events We Run

We run a multitude of events for one off projects, community engagement, promotion of products and regular occurrences throughout each year.
This has been done for over four years with the continued growth and learning of our team and clients we work with to achieve greatness. We strive to improve after each project especailly focusing on what worked well, and how to make that even better.

With the ever growing esports and gaming market, these events will become more mainstream and we have seen it over the passed four years through the acceptance and encouragement of non endemic companies and councils.

Crush Counter Capital

Crush Counter Capital (CCC) was an event that brought Expansion NZ to life. After a long time within the New Zealand Fighting Game Community(NZFGC) and seeing what we had on offer in Wellington, we came to the realisation that we needed a major tournament in the capital!

The event has now become a main stay within the NZFGC with people always looking forward to traveling to the event from around the country and even Australia. 
It helped revitalize the WFGC and bring more people into the community who are interested in fighting games. This helped promote Expansion as a big brand for esports and gaming events on a professional level as well as grass roots.

Great Games With Pals

Great Games With Pals (GGWP) came about due to a mishap with Armageddon Wellington where a group of cosplayers were not comfortable and happy about the situation.
Together with Expansion we created GGWP, a celebration of all games through artist talent such as cosplay and art.

Through the interest and passion of the community, this event truly came to life with plenty of support through donations and large community figures helping out where they can.

The desire was high for a second installment, you can expect to see this once again in Q4 of 2021!

Non-Endemic Events : Councils and Govt

Through working with and being a part of Arepa, we have secured and created many events for councils in the greater Wellington region and more. Most recently in Porirua for Waitangi Day and Levin for their ultimate gaming experience.

Many companies and councils are starting to notice youth are not using the traditional methods of communication and their marketing isn’t reaching. The rise of esports and acceptance in gaming has opened their eyes to more ways to communicate, but they are often led astray or do not have an idea how to get into the space.

This is our area of expertise in both consulting and advance, alongside running and managing actual events focused on esports and gaming.

Holiday and School Programs

Schools and care have seen a decline in interest through their systems due to the wider adoption of technlogy into our normal day life. This was been passed down to our youth who are becoming more dependent to their tech, making for less interaction or interest in school and afterschool/holiday programmes.

We have had large interested for afterschool care and holiday programmes such as the ASB Sports Centre, bringing in games for the kids to enjoy at the end of their day. By monitoring and giving a set time for gaming/tech as well as encouraging group play, we give the kids something to look forward to and creating a social space through games.

This became a staple and have received great interest from the kids, who are usually disappointed when we don’t show up every day of the week!
