Prospects, profit, statistics: key aspects of eSports industry at eSPORTconf Russia 2018

On April 3, Moscow will host an eSports business conference called eSPORTconf Russia 2018. It will allow representatives of eSports clubs, businesspeople and analysts to discuss prospects of the eSports market. 

The eSports market is quite competitive in the CIS countries. Remaining mostly local in terms of transfers, a regional eSports stage has a sufficient amount of foreign fans and new investors. 

In 2017, Russia established one of the world’s largest spaces for eSports called Yota Arena; the Russian eSports Federation obtained the national accreditation; the Russian Federation of eSports Football started operating. All-Russian eSports competitions are actively supported by the government.    

Speakers of eSPORTconf Russia 2018 will share relevant analysis and forecasts, focusing on both Russian and global eSports market. At the event, experts will reveal the most prospective strategies for promoting Russian eSports on the global stage.    

The conference will delve into all the priority niches for investments: from betting activity to eSports higher education. 

Conference key topics: 

• Growth dynamic of eSports in European countries and abroad. 

• Relevant investment opportunities. 

• Results of eSports inclusion into the official list of sports and possible prospects from government support. 

• ESports: traditional sports or commercial business model?
