Registration for #CEO2019 begins on February 1st
Alex Jebailey, creator of Florida’s ever-evolving convention called Community Effort Orlando (or CEO for short), recently dropped some details regarding the event’s return to Daytona in June 2019.
Jebailey and company brought CEO outside of its home domain in Orlando for the first time in June 2018 by hosting it at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, as opposed to the Orlando Wynham Resort which housed the event since 2010. Boasting a lineup of returning titles and brand-new games, as well as the first crossover event between New Japan Pro Wrestling and competitive gaming, CEO 2018 marked the brand’s greatest success since its inception right at the start of the decade.
It remains unclear if similar arrangements will be made with NJPW for CEO 2019, but we can tell you that. according to Mr. Jebailey, registration will launch on February 1st, most likely via SmashGG.
However, the CEO 2019 lineup has yet to be announced at this time.
In addition, rooms at the Hilton Daytona, which is located just across the street from the Ocean Center, will be open for reservation on January 25th
The brand has seen a continuous trend in growth when it comes to both players and spectators over the years. As mentioned previously, CEO 2018 marked the brand’s most successful chapter yet, with over 7,300 gamers flocking to the Ocean Center to compete in up to nine games of their choice, in spite of travel difficulties that impacted those flying into Daytona for the event.
Thus, it seems plausible to expect greater things from CEO 2019…particularly since the FGC as a whole will be celebrating CEO’s tenth anniversary this June. Knowing Mr. Jebailey, he and his team are already aiming to implement a string of surprises into CEO 2019 to commemorate this occasion.
The brand was first founded in 2010 as a warehouse convention that saw a reasonable amount of success. Having been organized in only three weeks, over 350 gamers and spectators combined were in attendance, with around a third of that amount competing in Street Fighter 4. While it was commended for its most remarkable turnout by far, CEO has continually broken each of its records set over the years, and CEO 2018 was no different.
So what can we look forward to this year? Stay tuned…
