In Italy, the world of exports is growing, albeit slowly, thanks to new investments seen during 2022. The main players in the sector are already looking to the future, as demonstrated by the announcement of theEspoGame event dedicated to the world of Esports, gaming and Web3.
Eyes are on two days of 15 and 16 March 2023, during which the representatives of these sectors will meet at the Rimini Fair to discuss the future of the relationship between video games and Web3. Osservatorio Italiano Esports, Sport Digital House and Italian Exhibition Group will organize the event by resuming the Esports Business Days, the first B2B format for operators in the export sector.
The 2023 edition will take the debate to the next level between gamification, blockchain, NFT, metaverse and other Web-related trends3. There will also be the Creative Center, a space dedicated to networking between companies and individuals in order to discuss the needs of brands and project proposals in the sector. Customized stands and legal corners complete the whole, specifically dedicated to discussions with and between brands, but also with lawyers to explore the legal and regulatory aspects of the industry.
The event will not miss prestigious realities such as RAI, Barilla, Red Bull, Dolce & Gabbana, eBay, LG, Acer and Xiaomi, as well as some of the industry’s leading experts such as: Fabio Viola (one of the top Italian gamification experts), Fortuna Imperatore (among the most innovative profiles in the game design field), Micaela Romanini (founder of Women in Games Italia) and many others.
Luigi Caputo, founder of the Italian Esports Observatory and organizer of EspoGame, said: “With EspoGame we wanted to aim high. Transforming to adapt to the changing world: this is why we have focused on the contamination between gaming and web3. These are two directly related trends, which will influence business worldwide in the coming years. You need to know them to anticipate their trends. We want to experiment, as is the OIES tradition, by offering the public one of the most important moments dedicated to getting to know these sectors. The program that we will propose, and that we will unveil in the coming weeks, will have a very high quality standard, both in terms of speakers and companies involved”.
