The second #ESIForum set to emulate the success of the first

After the rousing success of the inaugural ESI Forum, Esports Insider are delighted to reveal further details of the second Forum, set to take place on Thursday August 31st in association with Event Partner Digital Fuel.

Once again, the Fnatic Bunkr (23 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London) doors will swing open and welcome up to 80 professionals from both the esports industry and those with a keen sense of intrigue about it. Whilst last month, a panel including Wouter Sleijffers, Fnatic CEO dissected why football clubs were entering esports — August’s theme will be the gambling industry.

Prior to unleashing a proverbial truck load of pizza, beer and wine upon attendees, we will once again welcome a leading panel to discuss the esports betting opportunity. The panel will be made up of:

  • James Watson, Head of Esports, Sportradar
  • Suraj Gosai, CEO, Blinkpool
  • Toby Oddy, CEO, Digital Fuel
  • Peter Ivanov, Head of Esports Trading, Ultraplay

Moderated by Ian Smith, Integrity Commissioner of ESIC.

Each speaker will bring insight into just where the opportunity sits for bookmakers and suppliers alike, as well as the inherent challenges that the industry must overcome in order to realise the opportunity.

It’s impossible to cover such an overarching topic with just one panel. As such, Esports Insider, with SBC Events, are welcoming over 25 industry leading speakers, including Kinguin CEO Viktor Wanli, ESL UK MD James Dean, GameCo CEO Blaine Graboyes,  across two days in September (13-15) to Betting on Esports. Part of the wider Betting on Sports conference which expects over 1,000 attendees, ESI will run six panels covering topics ranging from data, casino opportunity through to brand ambassadors and integrity issues.

After the panel of the second #ESIForum is out of the way, we welcome attendees to delve into the pizza and beverages and network the night away in a relaxed environment. Although much of the gambling world are strangers to anything but FIFA, Esports Insider has decided to push the boat out and bring Tekken to this month’s forum. Players will be invited to compete against each other on the big screen with casters and a prize for the winner.

We are delighted to once again welcome SpecialEffect to the Bunkr as our Charity Event Partner, who will be again be on hand with a dedicated area to showcase some of the incredible gadgets that they’ve designed to enable gamers and they’ll discuss the life-changing work they do day to day.
