The February 20th SMCC Breakfast Forum will dig deep into the exciting, growing and uncertain world of eSports and its connection to sponsorship and sponsorship potential. The event will begin with a gaming demonstration, followed by some background on the industry provided by Nicole Pike of Nielsen. Chris Overholt, former CEO of the Canadian Olympic Committee and current leader of Toronto’s new Overwatch franchise, will then present a keynote talk. The event will also include two in-depth panel discussions with athletes and industry experts. For those who do not know much about eSports and sponsorship, this event will bring you up to speed!
