The fourteenth Brasil Game Show will be the stage for the third edition of the Equinox LATAM Game Awards, an event where the winners of the regional and global categories will be announced, in which Meristation is part of the editorial voting committee.

What is the Brasil Game Show?

Awards for the best games of the year will be presented on opening day

On October 11, the best in the industry will be honored on the main stage. More than 40 categories, including developers, content creators, Spanish- and Portuguese-language studios, and the highly anticipated video game of the year, will be unveiled at the continent’s most important event.

Marcelo Tavares, founder and CEO of Brasil Game Show, commented that the Brazilian event and the Equinox Awards have important similarities, as “one of the objectives of both events is to create an environment of gathering,” said the executive. “BGS invests in an environment where gamers can unite with the brands and industry personalities that are part of their lives, while the Equinox Awards unites the Latin American gaming community through an awards show that celebrates the qualities of our creators. It is a unique opportunity to celebrate innovative ideas for the gaming community and to promote the Latin American gaming scene.”

Emilio Eva, director and creator of the Equinox LATAM Game Awards, emphasized the importance of bringing the event to Brazil. “It is a great honor for the Equinox Awards to participate in the Brasil Game Show. This is a true milestone in the effort to unite the two Latin American markets to celebrate the best that gaming has to offer. The size and scope of BGS makes the event even more sensational, sharing and producing the ceremony in one of the largest gaming markets on the planet. We look forward to delivering an unforgettable awards ceremony and experience.”
