This year's STGCC is fast approaching, happening on the 10th to 11th of September 2016 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center. Do note that this year the convention ground have been moved down to Level B2 at halls E & F instead of the usual level 1 halls. The move is likely that these halls are bigger. The organizers have recently released the 2nd wave of pop culture personalities who are coming down as guests. Here is what is to be expected !
