Event: CEO 2018 in Daytona Beach, FL – 6/29 – 7/1

CEO Gaming would like to welcome the Rhythm and Dance Game community to CEO 2018 from June 29 through July 1 at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, FL!

Brief history on the event: DDR Storm was created by Joshua Campbell in January 2002 and quickly became Florida’s premiere dance game event. At first the events were smaller, only appealing to the local scenes. However, over the years it expanded to all of Florida and its neighboring states, bringing multiple communities together for fun and competition. After being an established annual tournament series for over ten years, it finally reached the national level, bringing in the top players in the country and becoming one of the longest running dance game tournament series in history.

The Florida members who have assisted Joshua with previous Storms will be working closely with Founder, Alex Jebailey to run a quality dance game tournament for the entire community. If this event is a runaway success, the rhythm games will have a chance to be included every year.
