Esports Insider heads to Portugal for ESI Lisbon 2024 

ESI Lisbon 2024

Esports Insider (ESI) has announced its new flagship event, ESI Lisbon, set to take place at the MEO Arena (formerly Altice Arena) from September 23rd to 25th, 2024. 

ESI Lisbon is set to be the largest B2B event and industry festival in this crossover, with an expected attendance of over 1,000 professionals from the esports, video game and creator economy sectors. With Esports Insider’s largest exhibition space yet, ESI Lisbon will feature two stages across two days featuring thought-provoking content and networking opportunities.

The industry festival will run parallel to sports betting and iGaming conference SBC Summit at the Feira Internacional de Lisboa, and will be the meeting place for the crossover of the esports, video games, education and the creator economy sectors.

Guest will get the best of both worlds as all ticket holders gain access to ESI Lisbon and the SBC Summit, a conference and exhibition with over 25,000 delegates where leaders in sports betting and iGaming assemble to discuss the future of the industry.
