The 5th annual Inven Global's Esports Conference starts tomorrow! We could be gearing up for our best IGEC yet. The two day conference is a virtual networking and gaming fan event designed to address some of the most important and interesting issues affecting the space.
There will be a lot going on, but below, we’ve listed a few of the topics you can expect to see addressed, and a handful of the high-level speaking talent we’ve managed to secure for IGEC 2022.
June 1, KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Dominic Kallas
TSM's VP of Esports joins us for a behind the scenes look at how teams operating at the highest level decide which esports to compete in, and how to distribute resources for the best results. TSM compete at the elite level in multiple games, making this an unrivalled opportunity to learn how decisions are reached on the road to winning titles.
June 1, ESPORTS TEAM CEOs PANEL
Esports is about players first, but every successful organisation has a head on its shoulders, making the decisions. We’ve assembled an all-star cast of some of esports biggest names, including the likes of G2’s Carlos Rodríguez, FlyQuest’s Tricia Sugita, T1’s Joe Marsh and Team Liquid's Steve Arhancet.
June 2, DEVELOPING DOMESTIC TALENT DEVELOPMENT
Scouting and talent development is a hot topic in esports, with many teams desperate to unlock the talent in their area and avoid importing expensive foreign players. Expert esports analyst and development specialist Kelsey Moser and Peter Dun, LCS Coach for Evil Geniuses, will join us to talk about the challenges and changes of player development.
June 2, VTUBING GUIDE
We’ll also have the VShojo team hosting a panel on VTUBING, joining us to share the secrets of their success, both for those looking to get into the field, and people just learning more about the craft. VShojo is the team supporting the legendary Ironmouse, so this is some of the best advice you’ll get on the topic.
As you can see, we’ve got quite the selection of names lined up, and there will be more to enjoy over the course of the two day event. IGEC takes place from June 1-2, with five or six panels each day. You can attend for free using the links provided, on Twitch, Twitter or YouTube, and registration gives you far more than just a seat in the crowd.
Over the two days, we'll have more than 20 products to give away, including hard-to-get T1 merchandise and Razer peripherals you really will want to get your hands on. Sign-up also gives you access to tailored networking opportunities and the chance to interact with some of our speakers during Q+As, so don’t delay, and make sure you’re registered in time for IGEC 2022.
We're two days away from Inven Global’s Esports Conference, which kicks off on June 1, and it’s time to announce several new sponsors for our event!
Firstly, we are joined by KRAFTON and NCSOFT, two of the biggest games companies in South Korea. We are proud to be working with such stalwarts of the industry.
Nexon, Netmarble, and Pearl Abyss are also welcome sponsors of IGEC202, rounding out our roster of video game royalty. It's fair to say we're proud to welcome some of the greatest names in Asian gaming to our table for this year's IGEC2022.
