No doubt 2020 has been one roller coaster of happenings; we have seen events being canceled or, at best, being attended online. Well, it’s time to stand up, brush yourself off for we come today carrying good news as Esports Summit has come in its 3rd edition this year but only bigger and more accessible to participate from the comfort of your couch.
Being the biggest gaming event in Egypt and the Middle East, Esports Summit is a first-line to every video game guru in the region. It kicked off in 2018 to introduce a new dimension to competition whether in console games or pragmatic sports where cosplay is an option. Its first edition had 5,000 participants, the one after had 8,000 participants with an online reach of around 15 million, and this year, the event is targeting 10,000 participants with an expected total reach of 20+ million to expand and allow more gamers to join the number-one dedicated annual event.

The event is fully virtual except for the analytical studio that we just started shooting.”
