If ‘YES’, the good news is that there’s still time to sign up as a session sponsor for our Next Stop Esports Virtual Event, designed to educate and inform key executives within the venue/entertainment industry on the benefits that esports events offer as a new revenue stream for their venue.

As venues around the globe finalise their reopening plans, there is a growing awareness of their need to diversify their revenue streams and engage with new audiences to claw back their recent revenue losses.

Esports tournaments and events offer incredible opportunities for ALL kinds of venues to do exactly that, including sports venues and teams, cinemas, performing arts venues, convention centres, hotels and many more!

Next Stop Esports will help educate venues of all kinds to understand esports and its audience, the kinds of events they can potentially host, changes they can make to create a more ‘flexible venue’ and how to establish local legitimacy through growing their esports content.



Target attendees will be from the following groups:
  • esports team owners & senior executives
  • esports tournament/league organisers
  • esports property owners, operators & games developers
  • Senior Executives from Stadiums and Arenas & Multi-Purpose Entertainment Venues,
  • Senior Executives from Theatres, Performing Arts Venues, Convention Centres, Major Hotel Chains, Theme Parks, Cinemas, Shopping Malls and Mixed use development projects

  • Convention & Visitor Bureau Officials & Destination Marketing Organisations
