The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), is pleased to announce the return of its ESIC Global Esports Summit (EGES) which is set to take place on the 9th and 10th of February 2023 at the ExCeL, London.
The EGES 2023 will bring together various stakeholders within the esports industry including publishers, tournaments organiser, teams, non-endemics, media and more. Stakeholders are invited to discuss and debate topical issues facing the industry while also sharing expertise relevant to the future of the esports industry.
Why ESIC has created the EGES
The EGES has been created by ESIC with the purpose of becoming the place where the industry can meet to discuss, debate, collaborate and resolve industry issues in a neutral setting. As a reputable, not-for-profit industry body comprised of a broad membership of some of the largest stakeholders in the industry globally, ESIC’s intentions are to facilitate this purpose.
Commenting on the event, Stephen Hanna, Director of Global Strategy and Partnerships at ESIC said:
“The ESIC Global Esports Summit represents a great opportunity for the industry to come together on a regular basis in a neutral environment to discuss topical issues in a meaningful way. By involving a wide cross-section of the industry including key publishers, tournament organisers, teams, agents, and others, the EGES is poised to facilitate progress for the industry. We are appreciative of all the speakers that have committed to our inaugural event and commend the receptiveness of the organisations which they represent in engaging with this forum for discussion and collaboration.”
To facilitate the EGES, ESIC has partnered with Clarion Events who will be working with ESIC to produce the event for the benefit of both ESIC’s membership and the industry more broadly at no cost to ESIC’s operational budget.
What can be expected by the EGES
The EGES is aimed at delivering critical insights through deep subject matter expertise. A key objective of the conference is to provide a meaningful knowledge exchange for all established esports stakeholders. Accordingly, ESIC has worked to ensure that the conference will not include any ‘esports 101’ subject matter.
The EGES 2022 will comprise of two main content streams:
The Main Stage
Hear critical insights from industry leading subject matter experts. Strictly no esports 101. The Main stage will be the centrepiece of the event with over 15 thought leaders from around the world coming together to present meaningful keynote style presentations on important esports topics.
Returning after a successful showing this year, the Think Tank will change slightly in format into a significantly more intimate and collaborative workshop session with key industry experts deep-diving certain topical issues facing the esports industry.
