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 at BOXPARK Wembley.
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!
ESI is a fantastic champion in this space
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.
