Global brands including Dolby, Twitter, Turtle Wax and Ubisoft will be among the 200-strong audience gathering at eSCon in Los Angeles, CA this September to address the current opportunities and challenges within the competitive gaming industry, and to discuss the benefits for non-endemic organizations who are looking to enter the esports space.
