Back to the Future - The Return of Online Esports

Ross recently sponsored and participated in the ESI Digital Summit, which took place from May 26-27. It was the esports industry's largest online conference event to date. As part of the event, our very own Esports Business Development Manager Cameron Reed joined industry experts to discuss the return of online esports.

The discussion was moderated by Heather Dower, Founder and Managing Director of Hotdrop, and the other experts included James Dean, CEO of ESL UK; and Anders Blume, Creative Director at Skybox.

What differences does this have from offline circuits both for T.O.'s & viewers alike? And how important will the presence of online tournaments be for the industry during this unprecedented time?
