GUNNAR Steams into Convention Season

The 2017 convention season is starting to pick up so we thought we’d share a bit about the upcoming events where you can find GUNNAR. There’s not much else in this world that gives us all the nerd-chills as much as hanging out in some foreign city, seeing friends, checking out the latest games and equipment, and eating a lot of unhealthy food. This year is no exception and we’re super pumped to see everyone’s faces at the various shows we’re planning to attend.

Up first, Team GUNNAR will be in Austin, Texas, for Rooster Teeth Expo which goes from July 7 to 9. Aside from everything else associated with this awesome show, we’re also very excited to pay Via 313 another visit for their incredible pizza! After RTX, we’ll be right in our own backyard for some more shenanigans at San Diego Comic-Con from July 20 to 23. We can’t tell you what we’re doing specifically, but you might want to stretch and be ready to run. Once SDCC has passed, we’ll be turning around and heading north for DEF CON. Calling Vegas home for many years, this is the quintessential show for all things hacking, digital espionage, and coding. It takes place July 27-30. Following DEF CON, and for those who are in the ergonomics industry, we’ll be heading back to Vegas to once again attend ErgoExpo August 22-25. This is a bit more of a laid-back show mostly because it’s all about being comfortable at work, and we’re perfectly okay with that.

Summer will be winding down after these shows have passed, but that doesn’t mean we will! After ErgoExpo, we’ll be in Seattle for PAX West from September 1 to 4. Great breweries, delicious sea food, and of course, some of the biggest gaming enthusiasts in the world – we can’t wait! Finally, winding down the season will be TwitchCon, and this year is shaping up to be the best one yet. It’ll be in Long Beach and takes place October 20-22. Swing by our booth to snap some selfies with us!

We hope to see many of you at these shows! Don’t forget, it is the Summer season so jump on gunnar.com to save 30% on GUNNAR sunglasses before you head out – 50% off if you also purchase a pair with amber lenses.

BlizzCon 2016 is Almost Here!

The most epic event all year for Blizzard fans around the world is almost here! BlizzCon has notoriously sold-out at record speed as thousands upon thousands of hopefuls virtually lining up in order to get their literal hands on tickets. The two-day event covers all things StarCraft, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch sparking an impressive amount of passion from attendees and world-wide viewers. What’s more, some of the most exciting esports competitions go on display taking place on jaw-droppingly gorgeous stages.

GUNNAR is proud to be involved in this year’s event through our renewed partnership with Tespa. They are the premiere collegiate esports organization and we couldn’t be more excited to keep our relationship going. And what makes this team so amazing is how dedicated they are to promoting connections among enthusiastic gamers at the college level.
