Esports Insider to host inaugural ESI Digital Summit on May 26-27th

Esports Insider is pleased to announce the inaugural ESI Digital Summit, a two-day online esports business conference; its response to the current circumstances.

Taking place over May 26-27th (14:00-19:00 BST), the exclusive digital version of Esports Insider’s renowned events is set to accommodate over 500 attendees – featuring 20+ sessions with over 75 industry-leading figures and speakers.

ESI Digital Summit 2020 Announcement

Despite the current global situation forcing the rescheduling of this year’s ESI New York, ESI Digital Summit (#ESIDIGITAL) provides everyone in the esports industry with an opportunity to keep doing business and network, whilst giving brands new to the space the opportunity to learn from some of the industry’s finest.

The five tracks, in which the discussions and presentations fall within, are:

  • Betting
  • Brands & sponsorships
  • Investments
  • Sports
  • Think (debate and discussion-focused sessions)

ESI Digital Summit, which will undoubtedly be the biggest online conference to date in esports, will also include ample networking opportunities, with the opportunity for private meetings, as well as a digital version of Esports Insider’s popular feature, The Clutch – a platform and competition for esports startups to pitch to an esteemed panel of investors.

Features, speakers, attendees, and more

Another staple of Esports Insider’s esports business conferences is the ESI Brand Showcases – a feature where a brand and its commercial partner take to the stage to talk through their successful esports activations – and we’re excited to announce that it’s part of the lineup for this upcoming event. More information on this, as well as The Clutch, can be expected promptly on the lead-up to the starting date of May 26th.

As we approach ESI Digital Summit, attendees will be able to set up their networking profiles and preferences, view the exhibition to speak to the summit’s partners and sponsors, and plan private meetings with others who will be present over the course of the two days.

Sam Cooke, Managing Director and Co-founder of Esports Insider, spoke on the event: “While times are tough in the events space, we’re delighted to be bringing something fresh to the esports industry with the ESI Digital Summit. Though it’s not at a physical location, the online conference will maintain the reputation we’ve built when it comes to having the best speakers, covering the most pressing and important topics, extensive networking opportunities, and exciting features like The Clutch and ESI Brand Showcases. I’m excited to see the summit come to life!”

Moritz Maurer, CEO of GRID – the gold sponsor of the summit – added: “Despite constraints during a global pandemic, ESI continues to serve the industry with a great platform to discuss and educate around topical issues & market trends. We can’t wait to participate in the first ESI Digital Summit.”
