What clients have to say

ESI London is for us at G2 a great opportunity to exchange on best practices with other industry experts while also giving us the opportunity to share one of our recent brand showcases – our partnership with Ralph Lauren

ESI is an indispensable event for esports professionals. With Covid messing the in-person event organisation everyone is very excited to get back to face to face chat and ESI is perfect for this!

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!

I’m a regular reader and consumer of ESI’s content, and having spoken in the event a couple of years ago, it felt right making [ESI London] one of the first in-person events to attend after the pandemic.

I enjoy ESI as a media outlet, it is my go to for the latest esports news. The ESI events are the extension of that, offering a real opportunity to gleam fascinating insights and connect with people working in or with an interest in the esports space.

ESI London is a fantastic event bringing together a great bunch of industry folk.

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!

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.
