It’s been over 730 days since we last saw you in person at ESI London 2019.
Since then, everything has changed – including our events.
At ESI London 2021, we’re giving conferences a refresh.
In addition to our usual blend of the best agendas, speakers and sessions, it’s time for esports networking to level up too.
We’ve made sure you can be among the first to take advantage of a new, personable way to mingle with hundreds of other attendees. Attendees can stick to the traditional drink and business card combo, or take part in Axe Throwing, VR Gaming, or Pop Golf competitions. Either, or, you’ll be able to build meaningful relationships.
For those more comfortable with private, quiet meetings, we’ve got you; the Beatbox space will provide this throughout both days, also a space for those needing to take the laptop and get to those emails on-site.
Our venue, BOXPARK Wembley, is full to the brim with various gourmet delicacies for you to enjoy, regardless of your dietary needs. Or, if feeding the mind is your primary focus, rest assured that we’re cooking up an unmissable agenda, bursting with sessions across various themes within the industry.
We’re back. #ESILONDON
FUN & GAMES
The Meetspace VR game (4v4) will be running throughout both days and is freely available to attendees to book & take part, so whether solo or with a team, get involved. We promise, it’s great fun.
Day 1 we’ll have Pop Golf in the evening, and on Day 2 it’ll be Axe Throwing, plus a quiz, so lots of good-times options!
The Playbox Networking Bar is conveniently located right outside the main conference room with ample seating areas behind the big screen.
BOXPARK is known for its exceptional range of great food & beverage options, and they’ll be there throughout for ESI London attendees to pick from.
For those important sit down meetings, we’ve reserved the Beatbox space downstairs for the duration of the two days. Think of it as the Quiet Carriage on the train. You can use this space for meetings or to catch up on emails as and when you please!
