A Look Back At How IGEC First Started

The team at Inven Global first produced IGEC 2018 due to our shared dissatisfaction with the overall quality of esports conferences in the West -- it's not that they weren't professional or earnest -- they just didn't feel like esports events!

What we wanted was an authentic discussion about the esports industry as it exists in the present. Most of what we saw was more... enthusiastic optimism about this "new" and "possibly big" thing called E-Sportz.

NA deserved better!

When our team first produced IGEC 2018, we designed panels and events that spoke directly to esports fans and industry members about the topics they cared about. Instead of talking about pro-players, we invited pro-players to talk. Instead of questioning the industry's growth ad nauseum, we invited attendees to ask questions directly to our industries' fastest-growing organizations. It was a home-grown esports industry success!

Take a look back at our first event and re-live those sweet IGEC memories!
