Event description

Description

Over the past few years, eSports have gained attention on an international scale, attracting hundreds of millions of spectators. The amount of time people around the world spend watching competitive video games continues to rise at a rapid pace, up 19% last year to more than 6 billion hours, according to a new report from analysts at IHS Markit.


In Hong Kong, this year’s budget speech by the Financial Secretary highlighted eSports as a new sector with great economic growth potential. In a parallel move, eSports are heading to the Asian Games and probably the Olympics. According to Newzoo’s Global Esports Market Report 2017, the global eSports economy is estimated to grow to US$696 million in the coming year, a year-on-year growth of 41.3%, with 52% of global revenue expected to be generated from China and North America. Given that eSports are now gaining immense popularity, would Hong Kong’s traditional entertainment industries leverage on innovation and technology to create value for their potential customers?


Organised by HKIRC, the 9th Digital Marketplace Seminar (DMP) themed “The New Age of eSports”, will discuss the emerging trends in the eSports business, how companies are striving to drive innovation and technology to create breakthroughs, how to tap into new markets in the youth sector, and new directions and strategies for capturing opportunities related to the rise of eSports.


This annual one-day seminar is the perfect platform for business executives, ICT experts, visionary leaders, start-ups and entrepreneurs to gather, share views, obtain first-hand market intelligence and keep themselves abreast of the latest developments on the Internet.
