Esports BAR Cannes 2022

The World’s Greatest Esports Business Gathering

Join us in-person in Paris on 23-24 May 2023


This is Esports Conex

We’ve welcomed hundreds of esports industry leaders to our event since we launched Esports BAR Cannes back in 2017. Press fast forward, and 2022 has been yet another incredible year for the industry.

Global revenues, audience engagement and online innovation are all continuing to grow – and Web3 is fast arriving. We too have been busy over the summer as we level up to bring you Esports Conex – an annual event set to retain the title of the World’s Greatest Esports Business Gathering.

The mission of Esports Conex is to provide you, as esports industry professionals, with a conference and an exhibition to connect, be inspired, do business, grow …  and to have fun. Yes, we say good-bye to Cannes, but we say hello to Paris, a global capital of esports and gaming.

Join us for the first edition of Esports Conex – the World’s Greatest Esports Business Gathering, in Paris on 23-24 May 2023.
