eSports and eGaming have become a booming activity worldwide. Growing at double-digit rates year over year, it is the fastest-growing live-event industry in the U.S. Taking over venues and destinations of all sizes nationwide, it has become a front runner in the rental space business. When planning to host an eSports or eGaming event, the item on the top of your list is most likely the venue, which plays a vital part in how the event itself plays out.
When selecting a venue for a high number of participants, the first thing that comes to mind is a large ballroom or a convention center. Ken Silva, senior project manager with media XP, a Toronto based eSports production company that stages events across North America say that “You want anywhere from 256 to 1,024 people in a bracket competing for sports in the top eight.” To accommodate this many people, there is a need for a lot of square feet. Along with that, there are other factors that come into play such as how will the venue work if the event is being broadcasted as well as an array of concession options, additional rooms for activities, power, and the biggest consideration – internet. We take Wi-Fi seriously. The Glendale Civic Center features reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi, with multiple access points to ensure your guests remain connected with no crazy add on prices.
