Understanding esports with Digital Isle of Man

The Isle of Man Business Network is hosting a breakfast event in association with Digital Isle of Man for what will be an informative, learning event around the subject of esports.

Pastries, tea and coffee will be provided by Noa Bakehouse.

Chris Kissack (Head of esports at Digital Isle of Man) and Lyle Wraxall (CEO of Digital Isle of Man) will take you through all you need to know about this growing industry, educating those with little exposure to the esports industry other than the headlines that they have seen of late.

In his presentation, Chris will cover the history of the esports industry, from its origins in internet cafés and university competitions to filling stadiums and breaking viewership records and give an overview of the vast esports ecosystem now covering a multitude of games, scenes and aspects.

Following attendance, the audience will be able to differentiate between FPS’, MOBA’s and CCG’s, understand the current trends and have an idea of what the future holds for this exciting and fast moving industry. Chris and Lyle will also discuss where the Isle of Man service providers and businesses can enter the space authentically and answer any questions you may have.
