As many as 60,000 internet and gaming specialists could converge in London in October, with the arrival of RTX to the capital.

The third edition of the international event, which has been previously held in Sydney and Austin, is a two-day celebration of video games and internet culture.

RTX is a division of pioneering media and entertainment company Rooster Teeth, and the event will also feature Rooster Teeth influencers and programming. It launched in Sydney with 600 attendees and grew to 60,000 gamers when it was held late last year.

Bethany Feinstein, director of events at Rooster Teeth, said: "The Rooster Teeth community in the UK is large and passionate. We’re excited to expand our presence to London with this RTX, our first European RTX. RTX brings Rooster Teeth influencers, YouTubers, video games and the best of the internet to one place and we can’t wait to start that party in London."

Andrew Swanston, head of sales, ExCeL London, said: "We are delighted to be the host venue for RTX London and will support their ambition to grow their event in our city. For this cutting-edge event, ExCeL provides a state-of-the art, modern environment for people to come, get creative, express their ideas and be inspired. We look forward to welcoming thousands of enthusiastic visitors to our venue later this year."

RTX London will take place at ExCeL London on 14-15 October.
