Be part of the biggest Pokémon Go event on the planet!
Trupial Media, Profound Projects and HMIS (Hospitality Management & Investment Services) organize a Pokémon Go Tournament for the entire island of Curaçao in downtown Willemstad this August 27th .
WILLEMSTAD - So what is Pokémon Go? In a nutshell, it is a freetoplay, locationbased, augmented reality game for iOS and Android devices in which players visit realworld landmarks in order to find and trap cartoon creatures (Pokémon). It has become a global sensation this summer and Curaçao is no exception to its reach, all you have to do is walk around Punda and Saliña after work hours to see this. These areas have been known to get so packed with Pokémon Go players it has even caused traffic jams!
Dave Elossais of Trupial Media stated of the tournament: “The game has achieved extreme popularity here on the island but up until now all of the occurrences of gatherings have all been random and uncoordinated. Imagine how great it would be if we were to make it one big organized occurrence, a fun tournament with teams and prizes. It could also prove to be a great social event!”
And many companies and organizations have understood the magnitude of such an event and have graciously lent their support as official sponsors. The list includes; Chippie, Banco Di Caribe, CocaCola, Renaissance Mall & Riffort, Curaçao Tourist Board and Downtown Management Organization. The event will take place from 4 pm to 7:30 pm in the areas of Punda and Otrobanda with all the necessary Pokémon necessities and 3 teams (red, blue and yellow) battling for possession of 2 headquarters (gyms).
Their will be live entertainment in Punda and Otrobanda for the entire family to enjoy. Additionally, on the day in question all Chippie users with a data bundle will receive free coverage on their phones while they play and there will be amazing Chippie offers for clients from other companies so they can also get data during the event. Participants receive an event shirt, free drink and will have a chance to win big prizes. Visit our Facebook page at Pokémon Go Curaçao ‘Conquer The City’ for more information on the event.
