Esports Insider (ESI), the leading global B2B esports events company, is excited to reveal the agenda and full lineup of speakers for their upcoming 2022 ESI London event.

ESI London provides the perfect place to discuss the growing market with brands, professionals, and organisations.

This year, ESI London will begin with the Hall of Fame awards on September 5th at gaming venue, Platform in Shoreditch before a takeover of BOXPARK Wembley on September 6th-7th providing an expansive 20,000 square foot for esports professionals to connect, network, and enjoy the main events. In addition to the networking zones, conference area, and other lounges, ESI London will offer a quiet work zone and a Safe Space, supported by Women In Gaming International (WIGI) and Swipe Right PR.
