Who is StreetGeek Inc. ?
StreetGeek Inc. is the non-profit and volunteer-operated group dedicated to running the regular StreetGeek LAN Party events, as well as running social and recreational events focused on video games and video game culture in the surrounding local and greater Adelaide community. We have run regular LAN Party events on a monthly basis since April 2005 until February 2015 when we switched to running bi-monthly events. A typical attendance at each LAN event is about 110 attendees, most of whom are aged 18 to 30. We are also proud to participate in other prominent Adelaide events, including the AVCON Anime and Video Games Convention.
What is a StreetGeek LAN ?
A StreetGeek LAN Party is a gathering of Video Gamers and people interested in Video Game culture, who attend for social opportunities, competition and recreation. StreetGeek LAN Parties are known for a strong focus on a social atmosphere, with a welcoming community, and the competition at StreetGeek is of the “friendly” variety. Attendees bring their computers, consoles and games, and spend the weekend playing games and socialising. StreetGeek maintains ultra-fast network infrastructure, servers, and a managed Internet connection. The schedule for the weekend includes planned games and tournaments. Some attendees choose to participate in scheduled tournaments with small prizes, while others prefer to play different games in smaller groups. StreetGeek events are drug & alcohol free and we focus on running family friendly events. Overnight events feature a limited Lock-In to minimise noise pollution for local residents, and provide the safest possible environment for younger attendees.
The StreetGeek Team
The StreetGeek LAN Parties team is staffed completely by volunteers who give up their time to plan, organise and run the event for the weekend. Our event team are made up of long term staff and event volunteers and members of our staff and volunteer teams hold current National Police Clearance checks, as well as Child Safe Environments training and First Aid training. If you are interested in joining this team of people as a volunteer, please contact us
