Profit focus to drive the esports debate at CEC Vegas

Roy Student, the US-based event ambassador for Clarion Gaming, has described the forthcoming CEC Vegas (September 4 & 5, Luxor Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas) as providing casino operators with answers to their most frequently asked question, ‘how do we make money?’ The two day conference, which has been launched with the strap line ‘For the New Era of Gaming’ will bring together online and land-based gaming operators with the relevant parts of the eSports industry in order to map out a progressive and mutually profitable future.

Expanding on the initiative, which is aimed at industry decision makers and entrepreneurs, Student added: “CEC Vegas will arm senior executives with the information and intelligence they most definitely need in order to fully understand the eSports phenomenon and integrate it as a positive amenity and attraction.  This is an exciting and emergent industry and CEC Vegas will enable delegates to hear from and network with colleagues who are already in the space, benefit from their insight and identify the stumbling blocks that should be avoided.  Attending an event like this enables the serious players to sidestep the pitfalls and accelerate their profits – it’s as simple as that and it’s why CEC Vegas is being heralded as one of the key C-Level events on the gaming industry calendar.”

Through a focused conference program and exhibition, CEC Vegas attendees will enhance their understanding of how to generate revenue, drive traffic and improve experiences through eSports events and wagering.  Online gambling operators will learn how to drive more revenue through eSports events and wagering and the eSports event community – comprising teams, league organizers, streaming platforms and influencers – will discover sponsorship opportunities and the benefits of collaborating with gaming operators.  Finally, the supply side of the industry, which includes wagering platforms, tech suppliers, payments specialists and big data organizations, will be presented with a unique and powerful chance to network, solidify partnerships and generate revenue opportunities.

Roy Student concluded: “eSports is an increasingly important vertical within the gaming space and it is therefore totally appropriate that Clarion, the world’s most successful organizer of gaming events, should join forces with the CEC team, the most influential voice in the sector to address the commercial opportunities at an event that’s taking place in Las Vegas – the home of gaming.  The level of interest is building and building in what is the intelligence hub for eSports in Gaming.”
