The global gaming market is huge and Dubai is on a mission to become the world leader in competitive video gaming with the launch of Dubai X-Stadium. A staggering 18% of the MENA population are noted as gamers, so this new platform will not only bring with it job creation but increased revenue from a new category of tourists – the eGamers. No more details as of yet, but we will as always keep you updated.
