“I recently attended an ESI event in collaboration with ESL, and it was a truly great event. Not only for the wealth of knowledge from the speakers, but also the service while at the event, and the great networking opportunities. “It is great to be in a space with so many industry experts from so many different backgrounds, and viewpoints. There is something that everyone can take away from these events, regardless of experience – with contacts and insight that you may never normally gain.”
"Thank you to the ESI team for giving us the opportunity to speak at ESI Birmingham. It was a fantastic event providing an invaluable amount of insight on esports, which is testament to the strength of ESI's relationships within the esports industry. We are looking forward to the next event already!"
“The ESI Super Forum at the Chelsea Football Stadium has not only been a very well organized event but also convinced with fresh panel topics all around the business of esports including a wide range of anyone involved in the scene. Well done Esports Insider!”
“My first experience of ESI was fantastic. Their event was very interesting with some great speakers and a wide range of topics covered, providing some great insight into the industry in a professionally and friendly way. These events also bring together the leaders in esports and are useful opportunities to network and hear about the latest advancements across the sector. I’d thoroughly recommend others who are interested in esports to visit the website and attend the next ESI event.”
“ESI Birmingham was by far one of the best networking opportunities I have had. The wide range of speakers and topics covered really gives a huge insight into the world of Esports. I can honestly say that without ESI events, I wouldn’t have made so many connections. I had the opportunity to gain exclusive backstage access to the biggest UK esports event. It was a fantastic experience which I would not of had without attending this ESI event. Professional, reliable, networking.”
“It is always a pleasure to work with the ESI team. They have a great combination of a deep understanding for esports and being very friendly while remaining highly professional. “Having attended many of the ESI and other competing events I can with certainty say that ESI are the absolute best when it comes to esports. I would advise anyone who is interested in the esports ecosystem and the business side of things to stop by both the website itself and one of their events.”
“Esports Insider are a brilliant front for the esports industry. They report on all relevant news in the esports industry and use language that makes the news palatable to the mainstream market. “Esports Insider events are always ran smoothly with great opportunities to network with the wider market, especially the traditional sports industry, which is exactly the bridge that the esports industry needs in order to grow.”
“Quite simply, ESI, that is both the site and their events, is a great place to promote your brand while also connecting with leaders in the industry.”
“I think the joy of the ESI Forum Series is that the audience are esports people; young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, which means you can dive deep from the off and don’t have to blow half the time doing an “esports 101 tutorial” for the wide eyed. “The questions were about 200% more interesting than anything I encounter at the usual “legal” seminars I do and the atmosphere is far more engaging. I would definitely recommend them.”
“With ESI’s thorough understanding of the industry, it has attracted high calibre panellists out of esports but also related industries, culminating into valuable and interesting insights on a variety of topics for everyone taking an interest into esports. We look forward to continue hosting the ESI Forum sessions into the next year."
“Great event and venue, and an excellent range of content and speakers. The content and panel discussions were equally engaging for organisations endemic to esports, as well as traditional sports rights holders and brands. “One of the few panels I’ve seen which have properly debated this issues. Well done to Sam and the team for a great event.”
