eSports is one of the fastest growing communities in the world. According to reports published by Fortune and the Wall Street Journal, the industry is now projected to top 335 million fans worldwide with revenues exceeding $1 billion by the end of this year. Suffice it to say, the opportunity to serve this community with creative content, and for brands to reach this huge, engaged audience, is massive and will only continue to grow in the years to come.
That's why, today, Polygon Editor-in-Chief Chris Grant is taking the stage at the Cynopsis World eSports Summit in New York City to host a conversation about the future of competitive gaming. He'll be joined by Mark Tuttle, Director of Strategic Partnerships for Daybreak Games, along with leaders from some of the biggest companies creating and supporting the space, including ESL, Twitch, Turner Sports, Activision-Blizzard, Intel, and Anheuser-Busch. Chris will share his perspective on the state of the industry while exploring how publishers like Daybreak Games are adapting their strategies to better accommodate this thriving community.
“It's exciting to see publishers and marketers continue to recognize the amazing communities the fans and players have already created,” said Chris Grant, Editor-in-Chief of Polygon. “We've had a lot of success serving the League of Legends audience with The Rift Herald and we look forward to expanding that effort in the near future.”
