5 – 7 SEPTEMBER 2022

The World’s Esports Industry Festival




Our flagship ESI London show made a triumphant return to the physical events space in 2021, and for 2022, we’re committed to making it even bigger and even better.

Our usual concoction of the very best networking, education, content and hospitality will return to the UK’s capital, with some more surprises in store.

With full details to be revealed in due course, ESI London 2022 will be our largest and most ambitious event yet, as we continue to listen to feedback, push the boundaries, and ultimately deliver the most memorable and valuable industry events we can.

MEET fellow attendees from multiple industries in and around esports and gaming 

PLAY as ESI offers new and exciting ways to capitalise on your networking time at our events

Private dinners, socials and more will also be part of the package as we look to make the most of being together – details to follow!



ESI London will commence with a series of sessions focusing on commercialisation – both how it’s been done well to date, and the myriad opportunities the space continues to present to current and new actors.


The second day of the show will feature sessions exploring the intersection of esports and the betting industry in 2022, along with discussions surrounding community and diversity as well as deep dives, insights and debates in regards to some of the many esports ecosystems – their strengths, weaknesses, challenges, opportunities and key points of divergence.

Later in the day, the focus will be on investment – both existing opportunities and ROI – before presenting the 2022 edition of our popular esports live pitch competition, The Clutch.

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.

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.

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.

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.
