IBC 2019 to host Esports Showcase and tournament


IBC 2019 will host its first Esports showcase, featuring a live Esports tournament and a range of speakers from Esports organisations.

ESL’s National Championship teams from Germany and Spain will face off in a live Counter-Strike tournament on a large cinema screen in Dolby stereo.

 Steve Connolly, business development director, IBC, said: “The esports focused events and activities that we presented at last year’s show were incredibly popular, underlining the unprecedented opportunities that the esports market represents.

“This year we have created a dedicated showcase with leading industry experts who will examine the state of the industry, separate the hype from the real value, highlight the production challenges and much more. It will be an unmissable day for anyone with an interest in esports.”
