The International Esports Federation (IESF) and Esports BAR are pleased to announce a partnership that will help accelerate the development of professional Esports around the world.
Esports BAR is the only international Esports B2B matchmaking and networking event, uniquely designed to accelerate long-term partnerships and expand internationally.
Since IESF is working consistently to promote Esports and all its values, this partnership is beneficial for everyone in the industry.
This year Esports BAR returns to Cannes, France, and will be held on October 13-15, 2021 as a physical event. The organisers will also host a three-day virtual conference focusing on Esports development in the Asia Pacific region on October 20-22, just a week after the physical event in Cannes.
IESF Secretary General Boban Totovski said: “As an International Federation we are always finding new ways to support, guide and educate our Member Federations and the World Esports family. Since Esports BAR became one of the must-attend Esports events worldwide we saw an opportunity to work together on our goals to unite the Esports community and promote Esports as a true sport beyond barriers.’’
Maria Perez Belliere, Global Sales Director at Esports BAR said: “IESF is considered today as a valuable player for the development of Esports internationally. Esports BAR’s role is to support initiatives that leave a positive impact within the Esports ecosystem. Our collaboration with IESF is a step forward to build a sustainable environment for all parties involved.”
