At Grow uP we’ve been handling small community events since the early days of esports (2005-2012), and we finally made our first debut with a 1000-person LAN Party called “Meet uP” in 2014, having had the pleasure to be one of the first in the industry to ever work with Gillette. We organized many other community-oriented events in Portugal and Macau between 2015 and 2017, having worked with the government in both countries, and participating actively in the International Esports Federation activities. We then moved on into running entertainment shows from 2017 onward, and this year we have 5 events planned around the world – 4 continents + the Middle East.

The session explores how 5G will affect Esports enabling new interaction models, consumption formats, and content types. It will look at the opportunities for broadcasters, content producers, and service providers to get involved in the rapidly growing industry.
