CEO Gaming has announced CEO Dreamland, a fighting games event with a focus on the Super Smash Bros. series.

CEO Dreamland will take place on April 14-16 in Orlando, FL and will feature five titles: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Wii U, Super Smash Bros. 64, Rivals of Aether, and Brawlhalla.

For the past few years, the Smash Community has come to CEO in June and supported the event passionately. Now we would like to show the love back and host an event dedicated to all things Super Smash Bros. and more for the Florida Community and beyond. This will be an event bringing together the Smash communities and giving them the opportunity to level up before the busy Summer season of big tournaments,” CEO founder Alex Jebailey said in a statement.

Jebailey hinted at the possibility of a Smash-focused event earlier this month, stating that it would not have an effect on Smash events at CEO 2017.

Registration for CEO Dreamland opens on December 16 and you can find more information on the official site.
