At the first Inven Global Esports Conference hosted by Inven Global, 3 CEOs of pro Esports gaming teams will be speaking - Jack Etienne, CEO of Cloud9 and the London Spitfire, Steve Arhancet, CEO of Team Liquid, and Noah Whinston, CEO of Immortals and the LA Valiant.
After his experience with Team SoloMid, Jack Etienne quit his job and decided to take a serious approach to Esports; he is an entrepreneur who also used to be an enthusiastic fan. Steve Arhancet was a founding member of Team Curse and a manager of the team. Noah Winston is well known as the youngest gaming team owner, having taken ownership of the pro gaming team Immortals when he turned 21 years old.
The IGEC is an Esports conference prepared by Inven Global, where eastern and western Esports professionals gather in one place and share their insight and knowledge about the Esports industry, in order to vitalize the industry and provide in-depth presentations regarding Esports. The slogan for this conference is “ESPORTS DEEP DIVE”; the IGEC aims to promote more professional and practical perspectives of the industry while fostering a new vision for Esports as a whole.
It has been predicted that Esports market revenue will expand by more than 26% by the year of 2026, substituting famous sports such as American football and baseball in North America. Although there are many Esports conferences in NA that satisfy the needs of the market, visitors have been expressing dissatisfaction over high costs and unprofessional speakers, and the need for a more sophisticated Esports conference in the region has been gradually increasing.
The IGEC is planned to provide more than 30 different presentations covering sophisticated and detailed topics by industry workers including Esports coaches, players, and league managers. A Premium Network Party will also take place after the conference, providing many business opportunities for Esports-related participants as they interact with each other and enter the global market.
The first IGEC is planned to take place at the UCI for one day from 10:00 to 17:00 on May 1st, and more details about presentations, ticket pricing, and relevant events will be updated on the IGEC homepage.
