eSports Business Summit 21

eSports Business Summit 21 at its first edition

Over 1500 participants were registered at the first edition of the international conference eSports Business Summit 21 on April 20.

Although the organizers expected a new record number of participants for the new project dedicated to the eSports industry, this number still exceeded any expectations.
Over 1500 participants, namely 1,504, were recorded in the golden minute of the live broadcast, a record number that was kept for good minutes, during two panels.
Probably the number of participants would have been even higher if the live broadcast on Facebook had not been interrupted (for no reason) by the administrator of the well-known social media channel.
The first edition of the international conference eSports Business Summit 21 achieved its goal and the large number of participants fully demonstrated this.
The undeniable value of the 30 speakers and moderators, the theme chosen, the way the moderators approach the panels, the new format of the event and, last but not least, the promotion of the summit, but also the history of online events accomplished by the Casino Life & Business Magazine, made eSports Business Summit 21 a new audience record benchmark.
