Expanding HyperX’s presence at gaming, entertainment, lifestyle and music events around the country, the state-of-the-art, 80-foot, 18-wheel, 35-ton semi-trailer unfolds with a push of a button to reveal a self-contained mobile arena featuring a competition stage with full production facilities, a caster studio, social media center and VIP lounge.
In November, HyperX announced the naming rights to HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas, and now with the mobile esports arena, the naming rights relationship between HyperX and Allied Esports continues to grow.
“HyperX is pleased to continue our relationship with Allied Esports,” said Daniel Kelley, director of corporate marketing, HyperX. “Having the HyperX Esports Truck, and beyond, gives us even more opportunities to reach gamers at tournaments, festivals and sports events in 2019.”
During CES 2019, HyperX will be showing new products including gaming headsets, mice, keyboards, RGB memory products, and its first HyperX USB microphone for streamers, influencers and casters. HyperX will announce a new gaming headset designed in collaboration with a Southern California headphone manufacturer, featuring fully immersive audio capabilities. The products will be demonstrated at The Venetian press suite and CES Unveiled and Pepcom Digital Experience press events.
Beyond the electronics show, Las Vegas visitors on the strip can now witness the newly revealed HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas and the new large signage installation on the Luxor Hotel. A time-lapse video of the HyperX logo going up for the world to see from air and land can be viewed here.
Inspired by the slogan “We’re All Gamers,” HyperX will also be debuting an innovative advertising campaign featuring HyperX esports, traditional sports and music ambassadors, incorporating their unique vision into the campaign. This campaign is expected to be seen on broadcast, digital and social channels in 2019.
