What to expect

We have assembled a group of esports leaders that have been involved in the world of esports since its inception. They will present their years of learnings, including:

  • Help you fast track your knowledge, by analysing what esports is
  • understanding where the global and domestic market is at
  • identifying where and what the opportunities are in esports
  • What sponsorship costs look like; and
  • how to get a return on your investment

The presentation will be relevant to people thinking about getting involved in esports. For example, one of our presenters will walk you through the deal terms they recently signed for $30k, yes the details of payment terms, what the sponsor is getting in return and how they plan to grow the sponsor’s audience.

The four hours will educate you on all aspects of the esports opportunity, give you tangible outcomes of where the opportunities are in Australia and give you a clear understanding on what type of investment you need to be in the game.
