By now, esports has solidified itself as an incredible entertainment proposition, appealing to millions of viewers across the globe. But as esports races towards maturity, stakeholders across the ecosystem have become more creative with their content. Yes, the competitions themselves draw plenty of eyeballs, but increasingly, the scene’s peripheral podcasts, investigative documentaries and influencer-fueled showcases have independently grown into compelling entertainment products.

In this panel, we’ve brought together representatives from some of the biggest names in the industry to discuss what’s next for esports as pure entertainment, and how the diversification of content in and around esports competitions will evolve over the next decade.
