The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) is launching the inaugural ESIC Global Esports Summit (EGES) in London between the 13th and the 14th of April, in collaboration with various stakeholders from the esports industry. The summit is taking place at ExCel London, and will bring together peers from across the esports industry.
The conference has been established by ESIC to become the meeting place and knowledge share hub for the global esports industry.
ESIC is a not-for-profit, independent industry member’s association aiming to protect esports’ integrity by resolving key issues including match manipulation, betting fraud and cheating. It was established in 2016 and has more than 50 industry members such as ESL, Blast and WePlay Esports.
The EGES will feature speakers giving talks across two content streams, as well as host a collection of closed-door industry meetings designed to achieve tangible progress towards several key challenges to integrity in esports.
Day 1 of the EGES will begin with an invitation-only “ESIC Masterclass on Crime, Fraud and Esports”, featuring guests from law enforcement, governmental bodies and ESIC anti-corruption supporters.
Day 2 is EGES’ main conference day, featuring two content streams: Main Stage keynote sessions and the EGES Think Tank, where dialogue between experts across the industry aims to foster new insights. The day will also include closed door meetings.
The main stage will be the centrepiece of the conference with over 15 high profile esports thought leaders from around the world giving keynote presentations on various esports topics.
Speakers attending will include those from Riot Games, ESL, Blast, Faceit, PandaScore, Fnatic, Entropiq, McDonalds, BMW, Dexerto and more
