Hudson Loft is a photo, film and event space located in the South Park district of downtown Los Angeles, just two blocks east of the Staples Center and LA Live. XLIVE has combined the two 2018 esports summits to create the 3 day, 2019 conference.
The XLIVE Esports Summit is the only event catering to both endemic brands – products like energy drinks, which are used directly by the industry – and non-endemic brands. For two days, it will offer the opportunity to learn from and build relationships with some of the leading organizations in the high growth esports industry.
The summit will feature discussions and presentations on the forces shaping and growing the esports industry, as well as ways to increase fan engagement, develop and nurture talent, implement new technologies and monetization strategies, develop brand partnerships and much more. These factors are vital, as over 80 percent of market revenues in esports are derived from advertising, media rights and sponsorships.
The conference will convene, team owners, tournament organizers, sponsors, investors, game publishers, streaming platforms, the media, consultants and other support professionals, technology providers, talent agencies, product developers and organizations serving the esports community. By bringing together this diverse array of industry participants, the XLIVE Esports Summit continues to nurture and promote the growing esports ecosystem and community.
Two special events on the cards offer abundant opportunity for networking. On Tuesday evening, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., the XLIVE Esports Summit Kickoff Party will get going at the Ace Hotel Poolside. Craft beer, wines and canapés will be served. On Thursday, the Summit will wrap up with a closing reception, at a suite at Staples Center to watch the WNBA, hosted by MGM Resorts International.
