TESTIMONIALS

IM电竞 London was a great opportunity to connect and knowledge share with members of the esports community and industry. It was great to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing esports as it continues to grow from strength to strength.聽 As more traditional brands attempt to enter this space and navigate through the complexities of the landscape, being able to discuss these important issues in an open forum is hugely valuable as everyone in this space continues to shape the future of esports.
Julian Tan - 
Head of Digital Business Initiatives and Esports, Formula 1
We feel that it's really important to keep educating people, brands and agencies on esports. IM电竞 creates the right environment and brings the relevant person to the table to achieve exactly that; I'm looking forward to be part of their events for the years to come!
Nicolas Maurer - 
CEO, Team Vitality
IM电竞 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 IM电竞 events, I wouldn鈥檛 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 IM电竞 event. Professional, reliable, networking.
Callum Scott - 
National Events Manager, The Rank Group
Quite simply, IM电竞, that is both the site and their events, is a great place to promote your brand while also connecting with leaders in the industry.

10 things we learned about esports with SMITE

How & why we used video content marketing and esports infrastructure to help grow SMITE to over 30 million players with over $8M in prize money awarded to date. Game developers and publishers should take away specific learnings to apply toward their own competitive multiplayer titles.

A Keynote from Todd Harris, President, Skillshot Media

14:50 - 15:30
PR in esports

The esports PR landscape has grown and improved considerably over recent years, with organisations and brands recognising the importance of it. But how does it differ in esports compared to other industries?

Speakers:
Kirsty Endfield - Founder - Swipe Right PR
Nicola Piggott - Co-Founder - The Story Mob
Ravi Vijh - Account Director - Bastion
Kathryn De Shields-Moon - PR - Skillshot Media

Moderator:
Thomas Bideaux - CEO - ICO Partners

15:40 - 16:10
Can you force an esport?

Esports generally are born from a community's drive to play a game competitively. Games built without esports in mind, however, face challenges implementing spectator tools and replay systems retrospectively - so should devs be looking for esports from the get-go?

16:10 - 16:40
Why should publishers work with third party TOs?

With the rise of big money franchise leagues it's easy to forget the importance of an open ecosystem and how it works so well across a multitude of titles. How can working with a third party TO benefit a game and help foster a healthy esports title?

Speakers:
Ronald Pompa - Head of Product - FACEIT
Todd Harris - President - Skillshot Media
Nikita Buffee - Esports Business development and partnerships - Allied Esports
Jon Winkle - Managing Director - epic.LAN

Moderator:
Ollie Ring - Head of Biz Dev & Media - IM电竞
