NYVC Sports Event

Loeb & Loeb LLP is proud to sponsor the NYVC Sports Event on the topic of: "Growth of eSports: How did it get so big? Where is it going? What does it all mean?".

The rapid rise of video gaming, now often referred to as eSports, has taken the sports and entertainment world by storm. Many industry experts predict that this phenomenon has more growth potential than many “traditional” sports. So it should come as no surprise that this is a hot topic. We plan to dive into eSports with an interactive panel featuring a variety of eSports insiders on a range of topics, including: Amazon buying Twitch for almost a billion dollars; League of Legends championship attracting a larger audience than Playoff games; Game tournaments selling out giant arenas; Colleges offering gaming scholarships.
