Launched in 2017 by SportsTravel magazine, the first stand-alone eSportsTravel summit will take place in Las Vegas on 17-18 July. The event will be hosted in the newly-minted 30,000 sq foot Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotels and Casino.
The event is currently funded by a number of investors, including MGM Resorts International, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and powerhouse Allied Esports.
As part of the expo, attendees will watch games from the recently inaugurated NBA 2K League. The event will also focus on educating people on the opportunities in the industry that are worth looking into. The organisers hope to create networking between all present and interested parties.
eSportsTravel Summit Timothy Schneider has said that his organisation is excited to partner with like-minded entities who are on their way to ‘ make history in the evolution and growth of eSports.’
