    Our next event...

    January meeting - esports Production During COVID

    January 28, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
    Mark your calendars! Registration below!

    Esports popularity has boomed in the last year, primarily driven by COVID stay at home orders.  While those same orders impacted esports production, they also drove new and innovative remote production models for both professional and amateur productions.  This month, we will have a panel discussion of industry experts including Jonas Bengston (Twitch), Scott Adametz (Riot),  Mark Alston (EA), Chris Keath (Blizzard), and Richard Goldsmith (Deloitte), moderated by Evan Statton (AWS).  Please join us on Thursday, January 28 at 7pm ET for a (likely more than) one hour discussion including Q&A from attendees.
