ESPORTS STRATEGY WORKSHOP

 

One of the biggest challenges that brands come to us with is where and how to activate in esports. With different games, communities and tournament structures it can be tough to decide on the best option or approach.

Our Esports Strategy Workshop provides brands with an overview of the esports landscape before focusing on the business objectives. We’ve also created a slim version for those brands who want an understanding of esports but aren’t yet planning to invest.

This workshop takes place over 2 days split across 1 week. The outcome from these 2 days is a bespoke esports strategy for your brand.

The morning of Day 1 provides you with a base understanding of esports, the structures, popular games and how viewership works. The afternoon of Day 1 then focuses on your business where we drill into your objectives, how you operate as a business, important stakeholders, approval processes, timelines and operational challenges.

We then take a couple of days break and reconvene for Day 2. On Day 2 we’ll walk you through a proposed strategy based on what we’ve learned about your business. There will also be time for discussion on each of the key items. By the end of Day 2 you will have a strategy and set of action items for how your brand can activate across esports.
