Our content pillars: the heart of our Esports BAR conference programme

The esports industry keeps on growing, fast; and innovation has the power to drive esports mainstream, to make the industry bigger and better than ever. How can esports lead the entertainment industry in terms of innovation?

As a brand, how can you make the most out of esports? What commercial opportunities do esports offer? How are brands monetising their activities? How can agencies help to activate brand image in the esports industry?

What are the key factors in esports investment? How do different regions around the globe address investing in the esports market? Is there a winning model for esports investment? How is the industry viewed by VC (venture capitalists)?

Thanks to its naturally digital devotees, the rapidly growing and evolving esports sector is one of the most influential elements in the future of the relationship between consumers and digital technology and traditional media. Esports leagues also have had to adapt in a way that emphasises their digital-first nature. What are the challenges?

The esports industry has a responsibility to create content to help gamers looking to have a positive social impact on their communities. It is about working with audiences to address issues including mental health, gender inequality, lack of diversity and bullying. This comes also at a time when the worlds of esports and education are coming together.
