Esports Hospitality Concepts, has been up and running live esports events since 2017. Founders Scott London and Seth Schorr have event involved in esports events and initiatives since 2015, and have worked with organisations such as Rogue, and have been highly active in the Las Vegas scene.
Esports Insider says: This event could prove to be quite a bit of fun if executed well. The fact it will be aiming to appeal to all age groups poses a few challenges in terms of scheduling, accommodation, and most importantly, the entertainment and attractions themselves. Though, delivering an experience that effectively connects with gaming, esports and music enthusiasts across demographics will certainly a mountain to climb.
