2018 Esports Production Forum


Esports isn’t just the fastest growing live-sports sector, it’s also one of the biggest drivers of technological innovation for live production today. SVG’s inaugural Esports Production Forum will explore how video game publishers, esports leagues and venues, and live-streaming outlets are bringing an entirely new mindset to the world of live-sports production. Join SVG at the Sheraton Universal Hotel on Nov. 6, to hear from esports production leaders on the state of the industry and get a behind the-scenes look at how live esports content is being produced and distributed to a rapidly growing fan base.
