Nordic Edge Expo

Nordic eSport Conference

Gaming is a pop culture that has emerged over the past 20 years and become bigger than both music and the film industry.

How do we relate to it as academia, business and sport?

This conference deals with gaming and esports from different perspectives. ESports is a fast-growing ecosystem – what opportunities does eSports bring? We have gathered a number of players from academia, business and sports. The goal is to create a better understanding and knowledge of this cultural phenomenon that young people have addressed!
