The world’s leading B2B esports events and media company Esports Insider has partnered with the Esports Awards to create Esports Assemble, four days of events, networking, content, and insights over November 18th-21st.
As the leading authorities in esports business and awards, Esports Insider and the Esports Awards have crafted the Esports Assemble to showcase and celebrate every area of the esports industry and offer unmatched industry and business-focused content, and networking opportunities.
Esports Assemble will encompass major industry-leading events starting with ESI Digital Winter on November 18-19th, Esports Awards Expo on November 20th-21st, before concluding with the renowned Esports Awards ceremony on the evening of November 21st.
ESI Digital Winter: November 18-19th
The ultimate B2B industry showcase including unrivalled networking, content, and speakers from the biggest brands in-and-around esports.
Esports Awards Expo: November 20th-21st
Intimate panels and top-class networking with some of the most prestigious and forward-thinking tastemakers in the esports industry, including one-to-one curated networking opportunities and group discussion to connect and guide the esports landscapes of the future.
Esports Awards: November 21st
The Oscars of esports which honour those who have excelled, inspired, and made their mark on the esports industry. The Esports Awards is the only dedicated esports award show to reach every corner of the industry.
Following the success of both ESI Digital Summer and Summit, ESI Digital Winter will be the crowning jewel of the ESI calendar. With 600+ attendees and 75+ speakers, the ultimate esports business showcase promises extensive networking, education, and debate.
The two-day event will present two iconic ESI content pieces with investment competition The Clutch and the 2020 ESI Hall of Fame, where three new esteemed members of the industry elite will be inducted. The previous edition of The Clutch, which was won by Anzu.io (with whom you can read an interview here) can be viewed in full over at Esports Insider’s YouTube channel here.
Sam Cooke, Managing Director and Co-founder of Esports Insider, spoke on the venture: “We are really excited to be partnering with the Esports Awards to further showcase the breadth and depth of the esports industry. Having worked alongside each other for some time now, and with us both based in the UK, it seemed somewhat inevitable that a collaboration would be on the cards! With four days packed full of the best speakers, networking opportunities, content, and award shows, Esports Assemble will truly be the best of both worlds.”
The Esports Awards is the only global annual ceremony dedicated to esports talent and for 2020 celebrates a milestone as it reaches five years of recognising industry excellence. For 2020, the awards are going fully digital on November 21st with a show that will be a truly unique virtual experience. With a record-breaking 2.5 million votes already cast, this year’s ceremony is set to be the biggest yet.
Michael Ashford, Managing Director of Esports Awards, also commented: “It’s a privilege to be able to partner with the team at Esports Insider to create a truly unique program of events. Esports Insider are a true market leader in building best in class B2B events that provide value to long term esports industry goers as well as brands at the start of their journey in this incredible industry. It was important to us, in a year as challenging as 2020 to be able to provide a top tier event at a competitive price and we are grateful to the team at ESI for sharing this objective.
“At the Esports Awards, we pride ourselves on providing a platform to build upon the esports legacy and events that inspire thought leadership and step change, and now, with ESI as part of our vision we can create the biggest B2B event and celebration that the industry has to offer.”
