ESI Birmingham, a one day esports business symposium connected to the UK’s first major ESL One Birmingham, is now less than one week away.
On Thursday 24th May, a day prior to the first day of the fastest selling Dota 2 major ever, we will host a one day conference in partnership with ESL UK, Intel, PwC and the NEC Group.
Taking place at The Foundry at Arena Birmingham, there will be six sessions in total, with four panels and two keynotes, as well as plenty of networking opportunities and an undoubtedly delicious lunch.
Tim Mangnall is Director at Hugh Holland, who recently signed an agreement for selling global sponsorship rights on behalf of NODWIN Gaming, is amongst the speakers at ESI Birmingham. Mangnall will, appropriately, be sitting on a panel called ‘Where is the revenue?’ alongside speakers from the likes of Jagex, Heaven Media, Fnatic, Bitkraft with lawyer Anna Baumann in the moderator’s seat.
He told Esports Insider: “The global esports industry is one of fantastic scale and momentum, a growth story we’re witnessing some truly astounding results from, buoyed by a combination of experiential, online and commercial excellence that I truly believe is defining the future of effective media strategies worldwide.
“The UK esports profile delivers undeniable value on a global stage, hence why events such as Esports Insider Birmingham, and the full portfolio of ESI events provide a vital platform of engagement with an international audience like no other. Hugh Holland is proud to be represented at the ESI Birmingham, and will continue to champion the great results achieved at each event.”
Tickets remain available for the event on the Thursday, and attendees also receive access to the Dota 2 major, including the option for a particularly exclusive backstage tour on the Friday morning, as well as an official after party at the Grosvenor casino on the Thursday evening. It’s certainly one not to be missed.
