What?

We want to discuss the Future of eSports in Europe.

With Professionals

The professional side of eSports is based on four pillars: teams, developers, broadcasters and leagues. We want to bring together the leading minds of each pillar, add some external perspective from business and sports and create a forum to set the future of competitive gaming.

With Sponsors

eSports attract an interesting audience not only for tech brands. We want to talk with successful sponsors and give possible sponsors an insight into this fascinating opportunity to reach their target group by pointing out parallels to classic sports sponsorships.

With Gamers

Gamers are more involved into their sport than typical fans. We want to give them the chance to help to lift eSports on a more professional and internationally recognized level and involve them into the evolution of the competitive gaming industry.

Why?

eSports is a phenomenon of the masses. Millions of gamers play and watch games online. Some countries are setting the diplomatic status of gamers equal to athletes. Professional leagues organize an ever growing business. Gaming gets serious and no one should ignore this trend.

Recognition

eSports fascinate millions but still struggle for recognition compared to popular sports like soccer or the formula 1 racing. The conference will help to build a reputation for eSports with business and media.

What to expect
  • Media coverage
  • A differentiated view on the subject
  • A serious business approach
  • Open dialogues and discussions
