Esports Insiders has become the essential and leading media for esports business news. It was obvious that ESI events stand out as unmissable industry meetings, bringing together the entire ecosystem. ESI London 2022 was a tremendous success, both in terms of networking and business, as for the warm and caring atmosphere between all participants.

ESI events are always a great platform for incredibly talented, smart, and wholesome professionals to connect and team up to revolutionise further our industry, In my opinion ESI events are the greatest example of how the B2B events should be organised to leverage the potential brought to the room by the speakers, attendees, and partners. Definitely must-have in any esports company’s events calendar!

ESI always has been a special platform for our industry. A mix of a professional setup as well as a casual platform to hang out with partners. Sam and his team are doing an amazing job receiving feedback and improving event by event. We at Shikenso can’t wait for the next years to come together with ESI!

ESI London was a fantastic event. Not only were the panels incredibly insightful and encouraging after a difficult period during the pandemic, but it was superb to connect with other members of the industry and form potential working relationships.

ESI London 2022 was a great event that gathered companies from all different industries wanting to connect with the esports industry. Seeing the huge interest from so many different companies attending ESI London is a great indication of esports being mainstream and thanks to ESI for connecting it all with this event. I enjoyed meeting new and old contacts and listen to the relevant panels. I look forward to the next ESI event!

A brilliant event as always from ESI, they continue to iterate and bring value to all attendees and stakeholders. ESI London has to be considered the de-facto “must attend” esports networking event in the UK.

It’s a pleasure to return to ESI London as it was The Clutch that gave us a platform to present our business to the world last year, leading to us closing our pre-seed round this year. I’m looking forward to hearing how the other finalists have progressed and to see whole host of new businesses pitching on stage!

James Duffield

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!
