Nowhere is streaming having a bigger impact than on live sports. It’s not just how we watch, it’s what we watch. Esports were born online, and for generations of young people they’re the only sports they know. It’s inclusive, interactive, multi-platform, and always live.

They’re also placing bets by starting or acquiring their own esports leagues. Publishers see the changes coming, and are adapting to support both groups, because it’s all just sports nowadays. This incredibly addicting, highly charged, constantly evolving world needs a conference that can keep up with—and even anticipate—the changes ahead. We’re it!
