Earlier this month on June 4th, The Inven Global Esports Conference brought over 100 different panelist, speakers, and esports experts together in the same place. Our goal, as it has always been at IGEC, was to improve the esports industry through the sharing of ideas and practical knowledge gathered through decades of real-world industry experience.
During the day of our event, #IGEC2019 was trending on Twitter throughout the West coast thanks to our esteemed group of speakers sharing their panels, photos, and memories of the event. IGEC hosted over 650 attendees for a full day of esports networking and learning; never before seen lectures and frank panels defined our event and the team at Inven Global couldn't have been happier with the discussions recorded.
Video recordings of all 30+ panels were recorded and are currently being edited and processed. We can't wait to share them with the rest of the esports world!
Special Thanks to Sponsors
Inven Global staff worked closely with our sponsors to make IGEC 2019 a memorable event that made sure every ticketed attendee didn't leave empty-handed. We know that esports apparel is on the rise in 2019, so we thought it important for IGEC 2019 to reflect that. ULT, Meta Threads, Ateyo, and Esports Famous filled our event with awesome giveaways, stylish apparel, and even surprise giveaways to unsuspecting panel attendees.
In addition, Esports Famous and IGEC joined forces to create exclusive cross-over apparel. These items were 2019 exclusive so if you didn't nab one, there is always next year!
The sponsor generosity didn't stop there. The World Cyber Games gave away an all-expense paid trip to Xi'an, China for one lucky attendee and, outside of the conference, developer booths from Joy City and Hound 13 gave away hundreds of dollars worth of iTunes and Android gift cards to attendees and UCI students.
IGEC 2019's after party (with a musical performance by the Super Soul Bros. setting the mood) had it's own LAN Center thanks to iBuyPower and, naturally, the entire event wouldn't have been possible without the following organizations who have joined us in our mission to elevate the esports industry through learning and networking:
