TESTIMONIALS "As always it was a pleasure to participate even under unusual circumstances (ESI Digital Summit). When spending all your time and energy on building your company it's easy to forget about the outside world, so I always appreciate the opportunity to be inspired by other trailblazers in the industry and their view on the important topics." JAKOB LUND KRISTENSEN Founder & CCO Astralis Group

“ESI London deserves to be recognised as the number one esports business conference globally. We had a number of excellent and productive meetings, the venue was first class, and, as a partner, we were treated brilliantly across the three days as always with Esports Insider events too, the agenda and speakers were excellent, engaging and thought provoking. We look forward to the 2020 events, and how ESI continues to capture the most relevant trends in the esports industry”

MORITZ MAURER CEO GRID

"I always appreciate the hard work that go into these events. Whether online or in person, the information and networking is invaluable and some of my best relationships in this industry come from Esports Insider. I'm very excited to be back in person for the next one." HERB MAY Director of Corporate Partnerships Houston Outlaws

“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.”

JASON LAKE CEO Complexity Gaming

“Team Vitality has been working with Esports Insider and attending their events for several years now and I continue to be extremely impressed with the service they provide and their events around the world.

Their esports knowledge and connections are second to none, and they have an amazing sense for partnerships of real value making them an essential tool for brands looking to enter the space in a meaningful way, and esports organisations who want to expand into new industries.” NICOLAS MAURER CEO Team Vitality
