24 September 2021


Esports Insider is proud to announce the return of its flagship event ESI London on 8-9th November.

ESI London will take place at BOXPARK Wembley, a 20,000 square foot dedicated events space in North West London, offering an immersive food, drink and leisure experience. The two-day event looks to connect the biggest global brands with the most influential leaders, as well as featuring world-class speakers in the esports industry. Speakers for the event are set to be announced soon.


Sam Cooke, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Esports Insider, commented: “The return of ESI London is incredibly exciting for us here at Esports Insider. We originally anticipated this to take place back in 2020, and we can’t wait to make the most of what is a fantastic venue for business and entertainment in BOXPARK Wembley.

“As ever, we will provide the best-in-class speaker line up of industry leaders, experts with topics and sessions that you’ll not want to miss. We’ll also be providing opportunities for attendees to establish real relationships and connections via a new take on networking – a beer and a business card no longer cuts the mustard, and we want to be the forward-thinking leaders in the space to offer this, alongside unrivalled value for money industry-wide. We’re back!”

Panel discussions will cover the progression of the billion-dollar industry and the various approaches by key stakeholders and brand leaders sharing their insights and experiences. Sessions will examine topics such as the growth of esports betting, the future of esports investment, sustainability of an industry growing at an accelerated pace, and the current state of esports ecosystems.  

ESI London is set to feature 75+ speakers; over 400 attendees; a collection of panels, keynotes and brand showcases; and guarantees two days of in-depth discussions and debates covering a multitude of topics at the heart of esports.

Some of the themes covered at ESI London on 8-9th November will be:

  • The Dotted Line – Esports’ Commercialisation, Partnerships & Revenue Growth
  • Angels & Unicorns – Esports & Investment, 2021
  • Esports and communities
  • In Play – The state of esports & betting – 2021
  • Reaching new audiences – Esports sustainability

ESI London will deliver networking opportunities, as well as education and debate as it commits to providing attendees with the opportunity to gain in-depth insights into the esports landscape.
