Alongside a multitude of topics surrounding the traditional sporting world, SPORTEL has partnered with us at Esports Insider to provide in-depth sessions from the esports space. This is a continuation of a year-round partnership between the two organisations; previous online events they’ve collaborated on have included SPORTEL Plus and the ESI Digital series.
This time around the sessions that ESI has teamed up with SPORTEL for include ‘Traditional Sports v Esports crossover’ and ‘Differing Data Challenges in Sports & Esports’.
SPORTEL’s esports session speakers include representatives from companies such as ESL, BLAST, Riot Games, Webedia, GRID, Sportradar, Infront, Swipe Right PR, Nielsen, and Esports Charts. In addition, SPORTEL Monaco’s programme also includes a session on the rise of the LFL, France’s European Regional League of Legends competition.
Esports Insider Managing Director and Co-Founder, Sam Cooke, commented: “When the opportunity arose to work with SPORTEL Monaco for its upcoming convention, it was a very easy decision to make.
“Providing an esports flavour within traditional sporting conventions is a great way to provide non-endemic entities with a chance to experience current topics within esports. We can’t wait for the convention to commence, in-person, on October 5th!”
Some of SPORTEL’s other exhibitors and visitors feature representatives from LaLiga, Matchroom, Eurosport, Feedconstruct, Eurovision and ITF.

On November 14th 2019, Monaco Mediax, the organisation in charge of SPORTEL, joined the Principality’s National Energy Transition Pact. As a result, the convention is expected to implement ‘various measures’ to promote and support an environmental commitment.
