eSports 101: Just What the Heck is eSports and Why / How Should My Agency Participate In It?

  • Registration Closed

The fastest growing sport today might just be "eSports". It has morphed from a participant sport for people playing video games to now having millions of players and even more 'viewers' all over the world. In addition, brands are investing heavily in sponsoring it and teens and youth populations (the hardest audience for a park and recreation agency to target) are heavily engaged in it. 

This session will share insights into the world of eSports, its participation and revenue growth story, share case studies of agencies who are starting to dip their toes in it and ways in which agencies can consider entering the world of eSports themselves.

Learning Objective: 

Learn about the growth of eSports and identify ways in which they can explore providing eSports as an offering in their agency.

Session Length: 20 minutes (Speed Session)
