ESI London confirms dates, early bird tickets go on sale

10 April 2018


We are delighted to announce that ESI London is confirmed for September 18-20th and that tickets are now live.

Following the dual successes of the ESI Forum Series in 2017, and the Esports Insider Super Forum at Stamford Bridge in March 2018, we are pleased to announce our next business focused event. 

ESI London is a three day esports business conference focused on building a bridge between expertise and interest while explaining the esports industry from the inside out from the 18th till the 20th September 2018 at Olympia London.

A full day of esports focused workshops covering topics such as how to build a brand and make content just like an esport endemic, league, event and team operations, the importance of PR in esports, legal and compliance and much more will cover just day one.

Day two will boast a comprehensive Betting on Esports track covering everything from data, to building a product for esports’ fans and the opportunity for casinos and betting providers.

Here’s what’s happening:-

September 18th – ESI Warm Up – Pre-registration, dinner and social

The exhibition space will be open through the 19th to the close of play on the 20th and will feature over 15 exhibitors, networking areas, meeting rooms, tournaments and fun in the Interactive Zone, and rest assured plenty of refreshments, lunch and networking drinks.

There’ll be networking events each evening on the 18th, 19th and 20th. This will be a combination of dinners, drinks, socials and, of course, an official closing party. All the parties are included in every ticketing option available. 

In case you thought the dates and London esports seemed familiar, you hit the nail on the head.  In fact, there’s no better time to be in the city for some esports action with FACEIT’s CS:GO Major, the nation’s first, set to get underway on the 20th, the day that our ESI London event comes to a close.
