ESI

B2B events company and publication Esports Insider (ESI) has announced ESI Digital Summer, a week-long series of panels, keynotes and networking.

The online event will focus on a different region each day from August 17th to 21st.

ESI Digital Summer (#ESIDIGITAL) claims to be the biggest global B2B esports event to date covering North America, Europe, Latin America, APAC and the Middle East respectively, shining a spotlight on the business of esports on both established and emerging regions.

It’s the second digital event by ESI following the ESI Digital Summit which took place across two days in May.

Speakers included major brands, Nestle, Kia, adidas and Formula 1 through to world renowned teams FaZe Clan, Team Vitality and Astralis and leading esports organisations in ESL and Riot Games. 

ESI Digital Summer will more than double in size, offering over 100 speakers, 1,200 attendees and more than 35 hours of live content across five days. Attendees will be able to chat directly and book meetings with one another throughout the week, and there’ll be AI-based matchmaking.

Through the event platform, Brella, attendees will also be able to take part in networking opportunities and will be able to host private meetings within the platform. 

“We learnt from ESI Digital Summit that a global event couldn’t just be a catch all for each region. People are eager to learn about different territories in depth as they look to grow their business internationally. This is something that ESI Digital Summer can offer.”

ESI Digital APAC, taking place on day one on August 17th, will be held in association with Redd+E, an esports-focused subsidiary of Singapore-based marketing agency Reddentes Sports, while ESI Digital LATAM will be held in association with Live Media Esports Entertainment, one of the fastest growing gaming companies in LATAM looking to evolve the digital entertainment landscape within the region. 

Sam Cooke, MD and co-founder for Esports Insider, said: “Each iteration of ESI events grow according to attendee feedback and ESI Digital Summer is a fantastic example of how our offering continues to evolve. The event landscape has changed dramatically over the last few months but one of the resounding opportunities behind digital events is that people are connecting on a global scale like never before.

“We learnt from ESI Digital Summit that a global event couldn’t just be a catch all for each region. People are eager to learn about different territories in depth as they look to grow their business internationally. This is something that ESI Digital Summer can offer.”
