Acting as a media house, translator and mentorship group, the ESI Connect will evaluate what you seek to do, propose the best fit, initiate the right contacts and support you in the delivery of your plans.

THE ESPORTS PROBLEMS
INWARD-LOOKING
For years industry leaders of all shapes and sizes have been going after the same targets and brands.
RESOURCES
The education piece in esports is still of paramount importance; and resource-constrained companies often spend wasted hours educating before beginning to pitch.
FRAGMENTED

There are hundreds of companies operating across the industry and it can often be difficult to differentiate between them.  

DISMISSED

The apparent risk to C-Level executives of entering the esports industry, often framed as the wild-west, can lead to it being immediately dismissed. 

THE OUTSIDER PROBLEMS

RISKY

Navigating the esports landscape is tricky. It’s difficult to understand what the true & genuine opportunities are, and what the ROI will be for your brand or organisation.

TEDIOUS

Most esports operators are busy doing what they do best, and finding the right fit or perfect business partner can take extensive time and energy.

CONFUSING

With each typically promoting a singular perspective, it’s difficult to see all the options out there, let alone realise who can deliver exactly what they need, at the right price point.

ILL-FITTING

At a glance, and without a full understanding of audience diversity, esports & gaming properties may not seem like a viable fit for certain brands or organisations.

WHERE WE COME IN

1. EXPERIENCED

We’ve been at the heart of the industry, promoting and educating about esports through our news, media and events for years.  We live and breathe esports, and know what works and what doesn’t.

2. UNBIASED

3. CONNECTED

We have run more business to business esports events than any other company in the world. Our events provide ample opportunity to meet key industry stakeholders & forge valuable business relationships.

4. KNOWLEDGEABLE

As fans and followers of the industry for well over a decade we’re on the pulse of esports. We cover every new arrival in this space, and follow all facets of the industry on a daily basis.
