The rise of esports and why it matters for businesses and communities
October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm
The explosive rise of esports into the fastest-growing live-event experience on the planet holds some serious lessons for the rest of the business world. Esports revenues this year are projected to top $1.4 billion while global audience figures exceed 433 million. What’s old news for the gaming community is rapidly capturing attention from other sectors looking to build a loyal and connected online community for their brands. Even the act of gaming itself has spillover benefits to how we work, from boosting productivity and creativity to fostering a collaborative mindset and adopting the right workplace tools and techniques. Five-time world champion in competitive Counter-Strike, and long-time professional gaming icon Stephanie Harvey will discuss the ways that esports will evolve and how other industries can engage and converge with this unique ecosystem.
