One of the coolest things that Futurelooks does is go out and support events that show great potential to be more than they are today. Over the past year, we've gone out and supported the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) LAN Party at the BCIT Burnaby Campus in Canada, first in Spring of 2012 and again in the Fall of 2012. We've seen it grow from about 80 people to 100 people to completely sold out at 150 people at this latest event, in just one short year.
Much of that growth has to do with the students and their enthusiasm for gaming. But it also helps to know that companies have recognized their amazing efforts and have decided to throw support behind their hard work so that they can continue to grow.
The BCITSA LAN party took place this past Friday on March 22nd, 2013. Here's our video coverage of the event in glorious HD...

Thanks to great support from sponsors over the past year, the Futurelooks Road Show has grown and continues to bring the free swag, prizes, and a great level of enthusiasm to this and other great gaming events in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. With continued support from returning sponsors such as GIGABYTE and new sponsors like ADATA Technology, plus support from great retailers like NCIX and our sister site, MEGATechNews, the Futurelooks Road Show continues to bring needed recognition to grass roots gaming events.
A big thanks goes out to all the volunteers and students at BCIT Burnaby Campus for putting on such a great event. We'll see you at the next one!

If you have an event coming up in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada that supports PC Gaming or Video Games in general, tell us about it in the comments. We'll see if the Futurelooks Road Show can make a stop. If it's outside the Lower Mainland, tell us about it anyway so we have you on our radar =)
