The second is a presentation made by Peter Warman, CEO of Newzoo. The presentation is set to cover the role of analytics in esports monetisation. 
Lastly – Ollie will be appearing as one of the experts for the “VIP Speed Networking” on the Thursday morning.
The two day event covers a variety of events across the entire spectrum of esports and gaming. It’s to be held at the Millennium Mayfair Hotel and with over 50 speakers appearing across the two days – it should be a great event.
The first day covers “Finance, Investment & the Economics of the Games Industry” with the second day set to cover “Esports in 2016: Understanding the Growth Trajectory”. 
Esports Insider says: I’m looking forward to attending the event and moderating a panel with some great minds. It’ll be great as always to meet like-minded individuals in the esports realm and also reach out to those who still aren’t sure exactly what esports is about.
