Khobar, Saudi Arabia – April 10, 2019 –   For the fourth year running, OMEN by HP was the main sponsor for Gamerscon Saudi Arabia which took place in Khobar between 28-30 March 2019. The event saw gaming enthusiasts from across the Kingdom attend and enjoy various activities.  
 
The highlight of the events was the Overwatch championship, powered by OMEN, which pitted eight of the best teams in the Kingdom against each other to compete for the title of this years champions using OMEN 17 laptops.
