Suisse Toy Digital is rebranded as HeroFest

From this year onwards, Suisse Toy Digital has been rebranded as HeroFest. And at HeroFest, there are no half-measures: the festival is taking over the entire BERNEXPO site – including the “Suisse Toy Classic” Zone. The latter is going 100% digital this year.

HeroFest: the place to be for all gaming fans

HeroFest will be held from 11 to 13 October 2019 at the BERNEXPO trade-fair site in Bern.
We will present to you the latest game releases, the current trends in augmented and virtual reality, esports tournaments and live streams.

On our fantasy stage, national and international cosplayers will show off their creations and compete against one another.

On the esports stage, professional gamers will play against one another and showcase their talents.

We will also present the latest hardware and software trends to you. The Fantasy Zone will offer plenty of delights for manga and anime fans. In the Offline Zone, board games and card games, comics and books are waiting to be discovered by you. And the festival will be rounded off with a whole range of workshops.

At the education area, you we have talks around topic as gaming, esporst, addicition and much more. And during the drone race, the hall will be transformed into a lion’s den for aerial acrobats.

In short – Herofest is the place to be for the heroes of tomorrow.
