The Production Network supported Valve with the production of the International 2016 DOTA 2 Championships. The production of the event inside Key Area improved from last year, and the event expanded on the Seattle Center grounds through a festival type experience. TPN collaborated with Valve to create activities such as; a Stream VR experience in a tent above the Fisher Pavilion, a Hall of Heroes that allowed attendees to obtain a video of themselves interacting with your favorite game character, expanded food truck offerings, refined player autograph area, a DOTA branded beer garden, and a second outdoor viewing screen.
