It's Something You Just HAVE to Experience.
Whether this will be your first gaming event or you are a seasoned veteran, The Beast in the East is a truly unique experience. It is a chance to meet more of your gaming community and perhaps discover some new ones.
We work closely with the community leaders of each game we host to provide the best event possible. A true event where it is run by gamers for gamers.
Our first 3 years were amazing and we begin a new saga this year at BITE. This will be our inaugural year into the Hampton Roads Convention Center! You don't want to miss this BITE history. Years from now this will be the year people ask, "Where YOU there?".
I can't wait to meet you at this years event.
Event Organizer and Co-Founder of The Beast in the East
