As a new generation of consumers becomes a viable marketing group, esports are slowly finding their way into boardroom discussions and budget planning meetings. We'll discuss:

  • Esports 101 – what are they and why should we care?
  • How live streaming technology affects esports.
  • Critical components that are nascent or missing from the current esports ecosystem.
