WHAT IS AN ESPORTS PLAYER AND WHY ARE THEY SO POPULAR AT EVENTS?
Put simply, an eSports player is a digital athlete, competing against other users at the top of their game. More and more eSports athletes are made each and every day in the fast-paced world of eSports. Consistent top performers are held in high regard, and more and more viewers are tuning in to social media gaming live streams, showing that it is personality, just as much as gaming abilities, that are in-demand to both viewers and sponsors.
When booked for events, these speakers can bestow upon their audience the secrets of peak performance, focus and making calculated decisions while under pressure. For younger audiences, especially at school events, eSports speakers instantly connect with guests to leave a lasting positive impression.
Not only has it brought thousands to prestigious venues around the globe, the industry has also garnered a live-stream community that have watched over 3.7 billion hours of footage. Engaging audiences worldwide, the top teams such as Team Liquid, Evil Geniuses and Team OG are all racking up over $17 million in prize money. The top 100 professional eSports players have acquired earnings into the millions and are made up of stars from all over the world.
