Taking Esports Seriously
Various facets of the vast and expanding world of esports will be up for discussion. While sold out big city arenas aren’t unheard of for the bigger events, what will the esports arenas of the future look like? Perhaps like an occasionally sold-out Capital One Arena or a packed smaller venue like Southeast D.C.’s new-ish Entertainment & Sports Arena? Might something like the 30,000-square-foot, multi-level Esports Arena Las Vegas be a model for what’s to come or will it more often than not be a large (enough) computer lab or available room at a college? Then comes discussion of the tech setup of the venues and the games, and the high-powered computers that are needed to heighten the completion ― and even keeping the gamers healthy while they work toward elite status: note that the panelists include Cait McGee of 1HP Gaming, who’s also a licensed physical therapist.
