“The path to successful esports casino integrations is starting to come into focus,” John Caldwell, partner with conference producer Narus Advisors, said.
“At Esports and Casino Resorts we’re featuring in-depth discussions led by experts that will help bring even more clarity to the opportunity, and provide a blueprint for success in this quickly developing area.”
The event will cover various angles of how casinos can benefit from the explosion in popularity of video gaming in general and esports specifically, such as event hosting, understanding the esports fan, and esports on the casino floor.
A complete program is available here.
Attendees are expected to run the gamut in the casino and esports industries, for anyone interested in tapping into the potential overlap of the two markets.
Speakers are pulled from a diverse pool of experts and executives, including:
Legal and regulatory experts, as well as casino and esports analysts, will also be featured on panels.
The event is being put on by Narus Advisors and Global Gaming Business. It will take place on Oct. 25-26 at the SLS in Vegas.
“The esports events we’ve run with our casino venue partners have far exceeded our expectations and taught us a lot,” Caldwell said. “Most notably, the events have confirmed our prior theory that esports fans show up in droves, and bring a fresh new customer dynamic to the property.”
Narus and Eilers and Krejcik Gaming recently put out a revised report on esports and gambling, including projections into 2020.
In 2016, Narus estimates that $5.5 billion in money and items will be wagered around popular esports titles, with that number expected to rise in the coming years.
