Hosted Brands Programme

Are you a global consumer brand?

As audience figures climb ever higher, and innovation makes the experience more and more exciting, esports offers brands the perfect channel to engage with consumers and to enter new markets. 

Esports Conex offers the Hosted Brands Programme: by invitation only, and specially designed for global consumer brands. The programme provides consumer brands with the support they need to build valuable connections and to gain key insight from international leaders in esports.

  • These top executives must be responsible for sponsorship, marketing or advertising activities on a global level.
  • The brand must be from outside the esports industry, from sectors such as energy, fashion, financial services, food & drink and transport.
  • All applicants for the Hosted Brands Programme are required to fulfil strict criteria. They will be asked for reference checks.
