ABOUT

ESI Digital Summer is the 5th edition of ESI’s successful Digital Events programme, allowing attendees from around the globe to network, explore, educate and be educated in the esports space regardless of travel restrictions.

It’ll be a 5 month gap from Digital Spring, but that just means we’ll be even more eager to provide you with more top notch networking and content.

There’ll be over 60 speakers across the two days, and the themes focused on will be commercialisation, investment, community, education and more, including the return of the pitch investment competition The Clutch for its fifth edition!

Attendees can make use of Brella’s market leading matchmaking and networking capabilities, complemented by the truly international ESI event community to discover new opportunities, and experience exclusive content with both regional and global foci that you won’t be able to experience anywhere else.

AGENDA OVERVIEW

DAY 1 – 8 SEPTEMBER

ESI Digital Summer’s first day will feature sessions on commercialisation before focusing in on education and community within our space, with discussions of how traditional higher education and newer certification boards can best integrate with the industry in a way that’s useful to employees and employers. To round out, we’ll have discussion of the diversification of esports’ entities revenue streams through the influencer market.

DAY 2 – 9 SEPTEMBER

Day 2 is set to feature analysis and debate on the nitty gritty of some hot button issues within the space to this day, and open people’s eyes to issues that may drive conversation as the impact of the pandemic continues to recede. Later on, there’ll be more discussion of commercialisation, before we feature the return of the Clutch Digital, our live pitch competition, for its fourth edition.

TESTIMONIALS
Testimonial
ESI London was a great opportunity to connect and knowledge share with members of the esports community and industry. It was great to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing esports as it continues to grow from strength to strength.  As more traditional brands attempt to enter this space and navigate through the complexities of the landscape, being able to discuss these important issues in an open forum is hugely valuable as everyone in this space continues to shape the future of esports.
Julian Tan - 
Head of Digital Business Initiatives and Esports, Formula 1
We feel that it's really important to keep educating people, brands and agencies on esports. ESI creates the right environment and brings the relevant person to the table to achieve exactly that; I'm looking forward to be part of their events for the years to come!
Nicolas Maurer - 
CEO, Team Vitality
ESI Birmingham was by far one of the best networking opportunities I have had. The wide range of speakers and topics covered really gives a huge insight into the world of Esports. I can honestly say that without ESI events, I wouldn’t have made so many connections. I had the opportunity to gain exclusive backstage access to the biggest UK esports event. It was a fantastic experience which I would not of had without attending this ESI event. Professional, reliable, networking.
Callum Scott - 
National Events Manager, The Rank Group
Quite simply, ESI, that is both the site and their events, is a great place to promote your brand while also connecting with leaders in the industry.
Kirsty Endfield - 
Founder, Swipe Right PR
ESI London represents a great opportunity for us, as a leading esports solutions provider, to be present and contribute to the conversation and to then positively influence the thinking of others who are learning more about the space.
Martin Wyatt - 
Head of Global Partnerships, Gfinity
I really enjoyed my time at ESI London. In addition to some informative expert panels, it was a great networking opportunity. I hope to return again next year!
Jason Lake - 
CEO, Complexity Gaming
Thank you to the ESI team for giving us the opportunity to speak at ESI Birmingham. It was a fantastic event providing an invaluable amount of insight on esports, which is testament to the strength of ESI's relationships within the esports industry. We are looking forward to the next event already!
