Now, there’s another industry blossoming in our region that is demanding attention: esports.  Our region is home to an impressive professional esports scene, a number of renowned collegiate esports programs and an avid community of fans passionate about gaming.  As esports grows, it brings new opportunities — for people at all levels of their career; for venues and destinations eager to host events; and for brands and organizations invested in innovative marketing and consumer engagement.
