Story Highlights

The third-annual SVG Esports Production Summit is going virtual with two days of panels, keynotes, and case studies on Nov. 17-18, delving deep into the next-gen workflows being used by today's top esports producers, publishers, and platforms. This year's event will be chaired by Activision Blizzard Esports VP of Broadcast Pete Emminger and feature an opening keynote by Call of Duty League Commissioner Johanna Faries. The event will also include sessions dedicated to remote-production, observer workflows, tech tips and tools, streamer and influencer content creation, and what onsite esports productions could look like when they return.

With live sports largely on a hiatus earlier this year due to the pandemic, esports events made the leap from fringe to front stage. These online tournaments are being produced remotely and pulling in massive audiences - not only on Twitch and YouTube, but also on major linear sports networks like ESPN. The SVG Esports Production Virtual Summit takes you behind the scenes of these live productions and goes inside the groundbreaking virtualized and cloud-based technologies being used by esports leaders.

Learn how production teams from top esports leagues and publishers are delivering content to their fans today and what tomorrow's esports productions might look like when in-person live events return. This year's Summit is once again being spearheaded by the SVG Esports Production Advisory Committee with speakers expected from Activision Blizzard Esports, Do Not Peek Entertainment, EA, ESL, Esports Stadium Arlington, FACEIT, NBA 2K League, NGE, Riot Games, Twitch, and more.
