Esports Insider has been running esports business focused networking events and conferences since early 2017. We’ve held events at venues from the Fnatic Bunkr, to Twickenham Stadium, Stamford Bridge, the Natural History Museum and in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and more. In 2020, ESI digitised its calendar and in 2021 we’ll offer a mix of digital and physical events to ensure that you can keep fully up to date with the world of esports business.
EVENTS AT A GLANCE IN 2021
ESI EVENTS IRL
Away from digital events, we’re continuing to assess the situation in different cities globally, in Europe, NA and Asia, and we are quietly confident in being able to deliver an edition of our flagship conference ESI London towards the end of the year. We’ll release more information on that and other physical conferences as and when we can!
ESI DIGITAL SPRING
30 – 31 MARCH 2021
ESI Digital Spring will mark Esports Insider’s return to the events space in 2021. Following the successes of 2020’s ESI Digital series, we are committed to continue to offer high quality and impactful digital events all year round as the physical event space rebounds in these challenging times. Find out more.
ESI BREAKFAST CLUB
JULY – SEPTEMBER 2021
The ESI Breakfast Clubs are invite-only, senior-level events focused on esports and surrounding industries. They are billed as intimate affairs, with a maximum of 30 attendees per event, meaning we guarantee high-level networking. They will follow Chatham House rules for any open discussions.
Anyone interested in getting involved can reach out to [email protected].
ESI DIGITAL SUMMER
8-9 SEPTEMBER 2021
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.
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.
ESI DIGITAL WINTER
1 – 2 DECEMBER 2021
2020’s ESI Digital Winter saw the induction of the third class to our prestigious Hall of Fame, and 2021’s event promises more of the same as we once again add more luminaries of the industry to the institution’s hallowed and entirely metaphorical walls. Hopefully we’ll also be able to celebrate with some of the inductees in person come next year, but we’re committed to keeping our global community engaged and involved in the process either way.
