Miami, FL, April 08, 2011 --(PR.com)-- CBT College (College of Business & Technology), an academic and career institution based in Miami, Florida operating five campuses in the greater Miami-Dade area, announces its fourth LANBASH event.

"Our LANBASH tournaments have become such a huge hit at our campuses all over Miami that we decided to host tournaments a few times a year at our different locations," says Monica Llerena, Corporate Director of Public Affairs at CBT College. "Since our first LANBASH in 2010, we have almost tripled the number of gamers, participants and sponsors and that number continues to grow."

A LANBASH is a party that involves a group of players competing in multiplayer video games across a Local Area Network (LAN) rather than over the Internet. As well, CBT College's LANBASH tournaments expose students to numerous opportunities in one the fastest growing industries, Information Technology and Graphic Design. "We are very proud to be able to open our doors to the community, while giving them a preview of what the future trades are," adds Monica.

As firms continue investing in new technologies, computer system administrator and graphic design positions are expected to increase an estimated 16 to 23 percent by 2018. Furthermore, CBT College is an institution that provides a top-notch education in modern technological industries. It also has a career services division that helps place its graduates in jobs within these booming industries.
