“The AIAS Foundation looks forward to partnering with Intel and FACEIT, who are experts in their respective fields of technology innovation and eSports to examine the very bright future of eSports,” said Don Daglow, board chairman, AIAS Foundation. “This event will offer the same level of in–depth conversation and top tier networking people have come to expect from the Academy.”

"The AIAS Foundation offers so much to the gaming community so we were naturally very excited to work with the team to produce the Workshop,” said Michele Attisani, co-founder and chief business officer, FACEIT. “With our line-up of influential speakers we want to explore the latest trends and how the industry is changing. By arming attendees with this knowledge we hope to better inform them of the industry and the growing number of opportunities available while also offering industry leaders a platform to exchange ideas."

The Opening Keynote will be headlined by Tobias Sherman, head of eSports, WME/IMG. Sherman was instrumental in bringing about the formation of ELeague on Turner Sports which covered the Counter Strike and Overwatch tournaments. Sherman will be setting the tone of the day, addressing future trends and opportunities for this industry.

Panel topics will include the evolution of eSports leagues, competitive communities, virtual and augmented reality in eSports, building the Stars of the future, how to build an eSports title, and much more. Speakers include eSports industry superstars and creative and business executives who have helped shape this burgeoning facet of the interactive industry.
