The Simulation Football League presented by APM Music will be looking to expand its brand and outreach, while learning from the best in the business and building relationships with them and their businesses at the ESports Business Summit at Caesers Palace in Las Vegas Oct. 1-3.
The Esports Business Summit brings together all sectors of the esports ecosystem for three days of networking, education and inspiration. Attending the event will be Executive management at consumer and business brands, marketing agencies, television companies, esports teams and leagues, sponsorship firms, game publishers, streaming companies, consulting firms, VC and investment firms, venue managers, sports marketing agencies, professional sports teams, and anyone else looking to understand the power of esports and explore ways get in the game.
Commissioner Cameron Irvine will be there to represent the league at all times.
“This opportunity is once in a lifetime it feels like,” Irvine said. “The opportunity to present our league to the biggest and best companies and to just the common esports fan all at the same time is a blessing. We are hopelessly optimistic about what we can accomplish in three days at Caesers Palace. A victory will be to grow our brand – and that’s a goal that will be nearly impossible not to achieve. To get this opportunity right before the playoffs and new Twitch Front Page opportunities is an added bonus. It is an honor for me and my partners to represent the league at such a prestigious event.”
Some of the more critical moments for SFL exposure will come at networking events, Monday from 5:00-6:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:15-11:15 a.m. and Tuesday at 3:20-4:10 p.m. The SFL will be a part of workshops that touch on ‘how to activate the world’s fastest-growing event platform’, ‘executive insights’, ‘creating a killer viewing experience’, ‘futurecast’, ‘the changing esports landscape and the opportunity for your brand’, ‘the biggest hits and misses in esports activation’, ‘finding your funding’, ‘smart streaming and content strategies’, ‘lessons learned from the sports/esports connection’, ‘diversity in the esports industry’ and ‘trendwatch’, among others. Representatives from key esports distributors like Twitch, Turner Sports and collegiate networks plus executives from gaming companies will be hovering.
“To be able to attend an event like this – this is for our community,” Irvine said. “To say that we are doing literally everything we can to give them an ubelieveable experience … I can go to my grave saying that has always been true here. If the summit does for us what I believe it can do, 2019 is going to melt everyone’s face off. If you didn’t believe in what imagination, creativty and hard-work can achieve before Season 12, you’ll believe it in Season 12.”
