Esports Insider and ESIC partner for ESI London

ESI and ESIC have worked side by side for some time now, and last year ESI became the Official Media Partner of the organisation. ESIC Commissioner Ian Smith is an ESI event veteran, having been involved as a speaker since 2016, but for ESI London this time around the two companies are stepping it up a gear.

There will be an ESIC hosted track on day two of the conference, which is taking place at Twickenham Stadium over 16-17th September. You can see the details of this track below:-

  • Cheating, match-fixing and betting fraud in esports: Where are we?
  • Can esports and betting on esports coexist in peace and harmony?
  • Reliable data: Can a standard be agreed?
  • The esports integrity ecosystem: Working together for the future of healthy esports

ESIC Commissioner Ian Smith said of the partnership:- “We are very excited to take central role in curating an entire track with our long time official media partner, ESI, for the second iteration of the excellent London Forum. I have spoken or moderated at almost all ESI Forums since their inception and I keep coming back because they just keep getting better. I am so grateful to ESI for their unwavering support for our mission to retain competitive integrity in esports and I’m really looking forward to being involved again in September.

The thing I like most about ESI Forums is that the speakers and delegates have always been esports insiders – literally – and that means we can go into greater depth knowing our audience are up to speed. It’s a world away from esports101 and that makes it interesting for everyone involved.”

Managing Director and Co-Founder of Esports Insider, Sam Cooke added:- “We are incredibly supportive of the important work ESIC does across the space, and our involvement with them to date is testament to that.

“For ESI London this year, our biggest event yet, we were keen to have them more heavily involved and lo and behold that’s what’s happening, with a whole ESIC led track on day two at Twickenham. This adds another string to the bow of an event which also sees the inaugural live pitch competition The Clutch taking place the same day, as well as a host of top level speakers and debate worthy topics across the board.”
