Wargaming Fest: Tanker Day expected to gather over 200,000 participants from 28 countries

MINSK, 8 August (BelTA) – The organizers of Wargaming Fest: Tanker Day invited 45 million Russian players of World of Tanks and their families to attend the upcoming festival during the press conference in the Embassy of Belarus in Russia on 8 August, BelTA has learned.

This year’s festival is expected to gather over 200,000 participants. A considerable number of them will come from Russia. In 2018 Wargaming Fest: Tanker Day brought together representatives of ten countries. The Premium Hangar zone is expected to attract guests from 28 countries this year, including from traditional ones (Russia, Germany, Czechia, France, and Poland) and exotic ones (the UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait).

Senior Counsellor, Head of the Business and Cultural Complex of the Embassy of Belarus in Russia Vasily Chernik noted that the Minsk software development center of Wargaming Company pays close attention to increasing Belarus’ tourism potential. The “tankolets” [aircraft in livery inspired by World of Tanks] created together with the Belarusian air carrier Belavia have become an icon of Belarus and welcome and see off thousands of visitors of the country every year. Minsk was added as a playable map to World of Tanks in 2018. It gives dozens of millions of players from all parts of the globe an opportunity to visit the very heart of the Belarusian capital and see what the city looked like in the 1970s.

Wargaming Fest: Tanker Day invites all the fans of Wargaming games to come to the festival and bring their friends and families. A large-scale gaming zone will be arranged as part of the festival. The World of Tanks game area will be one of Belarus’ largest outdoors gaming zones and will be fitted with over 200 computers. Famous headliners will perform on the key stage. All kinds of activities and contests for the entire family will be available on a territory of 100ha. A food court will also be available as well as photo zones, a children playground, and a beauty zone.

The one-day festival will begin in Pobedy Park in Minsk at 14:00 on 15 September. The entrance is free.

Tanker Day in Minsk’s Pobedy Park will reach new heights in 2019 since it will be combined with Wargaming Fest – a festival for fans of Wargaming games, which was held in Moscow previously.

Wargaming is one of the world’s largest publishers and developers on the market of free-to-play MMOs. Founded in 1998, the company has branches all over the globe and employs over 4,500 people. Its games are played by over 200 million users on all major gaming platforms. World of Tanks and World of Warships are the flagship projects.
