Held on Thursday May 28, 2020 at 2 pm HKT, the webinar will aim to explore the sudden rise in the esports viewership and engagement that is believed to be brought on by COVID-19’s impact on traditional sports tournaments. More news about the esports market is available here.
In the Thursday webinar next week, attendees can hear from gaming and esports research consultancy Niko Partners’ Darang Candra, who will share new research into esports trends during COVID-19, including betting revenue, viewership, engagement, and general interest.
The webinar will then go into a Q&A session where we also add esports consultant Hai Ng of Neomancer, wagering operator Michael Charlton of GVC Group and esports operator Marco Blume of Pinnacle to the conversation to answer several pressing questions including:
- Is this the right time to invest in esports or a “wait and see” moment?
- What is the size and longevity of this opportunity?
- How much and in what way should we invest in esports?
- What will happen when traditional sports return to their normal state?
