History. How we got to where we are and our plans..

Our Humble Beginnings.

A chance discussion between Terry Harris & Dave King based on an idea by Luke Harris to improve the LAN scene in Peterborough ended with Dave formulating a plan involving key people around the city. Meeting after meeting presenting our plan convinced them that this was the right time to create CITYLAN and the right city.

Be proud of our City.

By far one the most important meetings was with Marco Cereste and Annette Joyce from the City Council. Presenting their ideas and vision Dave and Terry were met with nothing more than equalled enthusiasm. The Gigabit City vision that Marco and the city has been developing, proved that this was the right thing to do. Now with the full might and blessing of the City Council it was onwards and upwards.

MARCH 2015
What's a Gigabit got to do with it?

Having the City behind them and more meetings around the corner, settling the technological issues and firming up who was key around the city was just as important as the plan itself. Key Businesses involved the Media, Peterborough Telegraph and City Fibre. City Fibre have been nothing but supportive and will present an un-metered 1GB internet connection throughout the event for both the eSports and Exhibitions stands.

APRIL 2015
Kingsgate - The Venue.

KingsGate is one of the largest and best equipped conference centres in East Anglia and the East Midlands. Their modern, hi-tech venue has a 1200 seater Auditorium, large Atrium, a 250 capacity conference suite, with 10 attractive aditional rooms. It was the obvious choice for CITYLAN.
