Lenovo and GEMS Education launch new Esports Zone at GEMS FirstPoint School

Lenovo has announced the expansion of its successful partnership with GEMS Education, with the rollout of its second Esports program at the GEMS FirstPoint School. This partnership will see students receiving products from the Lenovo Legion and Workstation lines, for both learning and gaming purposes.

The brand new ‘Legion Gaming Zone’ at GEMS FirstPoint School will feature a 360-degree solution consisting of industry-leading Legion PCs and monitors for gaming immersion, and high-performance ThinkStation workstations for seamless designing and programming. This will make it the first institution in the UAE and wider region, to be able to offer international BTEC courses in Esports and Creative Media – Game Design, for further practical and professional skills development of the youth.

In the Middle East, gaming continues to grow at an exponential rate with forecasts suggesting that average Esports players in the UAE will spend at least $115 per year in the next five years. This has pushed governments to invest billions of dollars in theme parks and other venues where Esport players can access the games or take part in the competitions.

Lenovo seeks to help further this cause, by establishing sponsorship deals and partnerships in line with the region’s growth and in efforts to enhance the Esports landscape. It will be exciting to see the fruit that these well-intention seeds will bear.
