EsportsX has been the Benelux knowledge event about the growing value & impact of esports and gaming for your business, policy or strategy for years. Industry experts and leaders teach how to create new ways of interaction and connections with the fast-growing new digital generations. More than 500 professionals, managers and policy makers from the Netherlands and Belgium will share their knowledge and experience, with experts and with each other during the most interactive edition ever! Because of the unique three-year partnership between the City of Rotterdam and Rotterdam Ahoy this year's EsportX will take place during Rotterdam Games Week on Friday October 18th, the first day of DreamHack Rotterdam in Ahoy.
Participants can compile their own program along four basic themes: 'platforms & eco-systems', 'activate & accelerate', 'public & sustainability' and 'sweetspots & triggers'. Inspiring keynotes are mixed with interactive workshops, round table sessions and matchmaking. Moreover, the day is appropriately closed with a visit to Dreamhack, the largest gaming event in the world that is taking place for the first time this year in Rotterdam Ahoy.
Various international speakers tell more about the value of esports and gaming. Several Dutch speakers are already confirmed, including Koen Weijland (Team Strijders), Sven de Langen (Councilor of the City of Rotterdam), Marc Rondagh (Eredivisie CV) and Kevin Loos (2Basics). The day is led by Simon Zijlemans (presenter of RTL7 Voetbal among others).
EsportsX is an initiative of Techonomy, Dutch Game Masters and Arko Sports Media. The forthcoming edition is organized in collaboration with Rotterdam Ahoy, Rotterdam Games Week and the City of Rotterdam. EsportsX has been the # 1 esports conference in the Benelux for years and has become an unmissable knowledge event for professionals, managers and policy makers who want to learn how they can create new interactions and connections through esports!
