IGEC TRIVIA: Riot is IGEC's first returning keynote presenter, presenting previously during IGEC 2019

IGEC 2021 returns once more in a new virtual format designed to facilitate networking among esports industry professionals and interested attendees. Thanks to topic-specific industry breakout sessions, vetted speakers and over a dozen panels built around the most relevant topics facing esports this decade, IGEC remains the most industry-attended esports networking event in NA.


Why Register for IGEC?

As many of our past attendees know, a ticket to IGEC can open up a world of esports opportunities and connections that can otherwise feel far out of reach. Inven Global events are designed to connect real esports industry veterans and decision-makers with new talent or interested professionals that are ready to get involved.

Our international community of IGEC speakers, partners, and sponsors attend each year to expand their networks and learn what industry leaders think about the most pressing issues facing esports.  Over the years, our team has enjoyed hearing testimonials from past attendees and speakers about how a connection at IGEC led to a new career or major partnership in esports -- these types of connections are why IGEC was first created!

In the spirit of growing our industry,  IGEC 2021 is free to attend for esports industry members and students who qualify for a pass. Registering for a pass does not guarantee one and approved registrants will hear from Inven Global a week before the event.

Ticket holders and other industry pass holders will have access to these discussions, but only as a listener.
