will-esports-hype-survive-past-covid-19Held on Thursday 28th May 2020 at 2 pm HKT, the webinar will aim to explore the sudden rise in esports viewership and engagement which is believed to be brought on by Covid-19’s impact on traditional sports tournaments.

In our Thursday webinar next week, we hear from gaming and esports research consultancy Niko Partners’s 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 a number of pressing questions including:

• Is this the right time to invest in esports, or a ‘wait and see’
• What is the size and longevity of this opportunity?
• How much and in what way should I be investing in esports?
• What will happen once traditional sports returns to normality?

Join the discussion with our expert panel on Thursday 28th May at 2 pm HKT.
