In 2013 the prospect of a stadium event hardly looked like a guaranteed slam dunk. Today, you could say that the history of ESL is divided into two distinct eras: what came before Intel Extreme Masters Katowice and what came after.  Join me at the ESIC Global Esports Summit as I talk about the lessons we've learned between founding the event, transitioning the main tournament from League of Legends to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and navigating it through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Michał Blicharz, VP Product Development

Firstly I’m excited to be getting back to in person conferences and being able to hear from colleagues across the industry on the challenges, success stories and learnings from the Covid era. Secondly I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences of delivering a range of tournaments during that era, what we’ll take from this going forward and what mistakes we’ve made and hopefully what we learnt from those mistakes.

Andrew Haworth, Commissioner

I am incredibly excited to be speaking at the ESIC Global Esports Summit this year, the work they are doing in the space to bring legitimacy to all aspects of the industry is brilliant. Having worked in traditional sports as well as esports I look forward to sharing some of the insights I have gained as well as showcase the significant positive trajectory the industry is on, leaning on experiences I have gained from our industry leading partnerships at Fnatic.

Edward Gregory, Senior Partnership Manager

After 2 years of disruption with the pandemic, I’m really looking forward to joining an in person event focused on the esports sector.  There will be much to discuss with investment and consolidation in the esports and gaming sector reaching new heights over recent months, along with the increased focus on the metaverse and web 3.0.  It’s an exciting time for the industry with both new challenges and opportunities arriving.

David Harris, Managing Director

I'm excited to be part of the inaugural ESIC Global Esports Summit as this is probably the first time that all relevant stakeholders will be able to exchange ideas about some of the most important long-term topics in esports. This includes how and by whom players should be represented. We could look at how talent representation is structured in 'traditional' sports for guidance, but we should be very careful not to make the same mistakes from it's past.

Rowan Stroo, Division Director
