Esports competitors, celebrities, and games are becoming household names worldwide, with high schools and universities even launching varsity esports teams. As a new generation of consumers becomes a viable marketing group, esports are slowly finding their way into boardroom discussions and budget planning meetings. We’ll discuss:

  • Esports 101 – what are they and why should we care?
  • How live streaming technology affects esports.
  • Critical components that are nascent or missing from the current esports ecosystem.
  • How esports broadcasting is different from traditional sports broadcasting.

Participants will explore numerous areas of esports and discover areas for maturity and growth in an industry that is projected to exceed a billion dollars in revenue in 2019.
