UGC Niagara

UGC Niagara was the first international video game tournament that Jet Set Studio conceptualized, developed, promoted, and managed.

This large-scale event was an educational fundraiser for the District School Board of Niagara and was a HUGE success in its first year.

Along with tons of exciting video game action, UGC Niagara had a unique educational spin.  The Gamification of Learning Exhibit was a neat opportunity for attendees to learn how video games are being used in the classroom and in real world educational applications.


UGC Niagara had over 500 attendees, awarded players over $30,000 is cash and prizes, and entertained over 475,000 online viewers with a professional live stream.  This competitive gaming tournament was held right on the Niagara Falls in Canada and brought gamers together from all over the region.
