New Mind Sports Festival Unveiled and Official Dates for the 2012 Prague
Poker Festival Released
LAS VEGAS, NV, July 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Leading poker event management and
consultancy, Living it Loving it Ltd., announces its global expansion
plans for 2013 and the formation of Mind Sports (International) Ltd.
Recognized for its inclusive approach to managing and producing live
events, tours and bespoke festivals for the world's leading
organizations and gaming corporations, Living it Loving it has quickly
established itself as the "go-to" consultancy for companies looking to
bridge-the-gap between the online and land-based environment.
The company opened its Las Vegas offices in November 2011, and is
planning to double its size over the next 12 months, recruiting more
US-based industry professionals in a bid to build further upon its
recently agreed US and South American contracts.
"Our goal is to connect online gaming networks and land-based casinos in
a way that brings value to all parties, especially players and
customers whom are looking for engaging experiences and the best live
events across the world of gaming and mind sports," commented Dave
Brannan, Managing Director, Living it Loving it Ltd.
The company has recently agreed to tap into the South American market,
with plans to establish a series of new poker events as well as
introducing existing high profile tours to the continent in early 2013.
Further details on the agreements will be announced this summer with
preliminary schedules being released shortly thereafter.
Outside of the world of poker, Living it Loving it Ltd. has taken yet
another pioneering step forward, announcing the formation of Mind
Sports (International) Ltd. Commencing today, the company will operate
under the Living it Loving it group umbrella, embracing and bringing
together the world's most popular mind games in order to deliver even
more entertainment and tournament competition to live events and
festivals around the world.
"Mind Sports have become increasingly popular thanks to the popularity
and demand for mobile and social gaming," explains Brannan. "We view
poker as one of the core mind sports alongside traditional games such
as bridge, backgammon and chess. Our aim is to integrate these
skill-based mind sports, creating the world's biggest independent
festivals following the launch of the inaugural Prague Mind Sports
Festival taking place at the end of the year."
Living it Loving it Ltd. pioneered the highly successful poker festival
format having listened to players needs and staying true to its
independent positioning. The company has succeeded in bringing
competing brands together, creating non-conflicting festival schedules
that benefit online networks, land-based venues, existing tours and
most importantly the players.
The hugely successful Prague Poker Festival in 2011 exceeded all
expectation and its repeat, along with the launch and integration of
the new Prague Mind Sports Festival is highly anticipated by online
sites, tours and players alike.
Taking place at King's Casino and the 5-Star Corinthia Hotel, and
running from November 26 - December 16, 2012, the Prague Poker Festival
is poised to be bigger and better than ever before, and will feature
yet another exciting WPT Prague event plus others. Player numbers are
currently being forecasted to be in excess of 3,000 -- surpassing last
years' record-breaking 2,600 attendance.
The integration of the first Prague Mind Sports Festival, which runs
from December 1 - 4 at the same location, will bring even more value to
attendees as well as plenty of variety.
Backgammon, Scrabble, Risk and eSports including League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are already confirmed for the ground-breaking festival, with many more
being added over the coming months.
Having started as purely an events company with an inner passion for
poker, Living it Loving it Ltd., has moved on from its humble
beginnings and is now seen as a serious consultancy and events expert
in the world of poker and gaming.
Brannan comments, "We have received a lot of recognition over the years
for our personal service and logistical work for tour-focused clients.
Travel provision for individual events is an element that we are
starting to move away from in order to follow our wider event
consultancy plan. We are looking forward to working with others in this
space, as collaboration remains a major cornerstone of our business."
Living it Loving it Ltd. is currently consulting for a number of
international corporations, casino groups and has worked closely with
the likes of the World Poker Tour, WSOP, EPT, GSOP live and the
majority of online poker networks over the years, creating leading
events and festivals that exceed expectation.
