ESI Forum Series

With our Forum Series we welcome the finest professionals from in and around the industry at Fnatic’s Bunkr in Shoreditch, London once a month. The format is relaxed evenings of food, drink, networking opportunities, panel discussions on the more interesting and debatable topics in esports and a tournament.

We’ve now had two successful ESI Forum Series events, both of which sold out and saw a packed out Bunkr.

The first ESI Forum got off to a flying start with an engaging panel discussion from Fnatic CEO Wouter Sleijffers, VfL Wolfsburg pro David Bytheway, Sky Sports commentator Gary Taphouse and Fortaura CEO Ibrahim Taylor

The second followed it up with food for thought on the esports betting space with a panel moderated by ESIC Commissioner Ian Smith and featuring Digital Fuel Group CEO Toby Oddy, UltraPlay Head of Esports Trading Peter Ivanov, Sportradar’s Head of Esports James Watson and Blinkpool CEO Suraj Gosai

Whilst each ESI Forum Series event will have a different theme and focus, each and every event will be hosted at Fnatic’s Bunkr and will provide the ideal opportunity for those in and around esports to catch up, network and put faces to familiar names.

The ESI Forum Series events are, henceforth, always from 6-10pm, and generally on the last Thursday of every month. You’ll be able to secure tickets shortly. Below is what we have coming up:-
