Think Services To Hold 2009 International eSports Conference

The Think Services-organized International eSports Conference 09 is set for Cologne, Germany, at Electronic Arts' HQ this May, bringing together pro gaming professionals to discuss the state of the business.
Game Developers Conference organizer Think Services (also parent of Gamasutra) has announced that the International eSports Conference 09 is set for Cologne, Germany on May 26th-27th, at Electronic Arts' headquarters there. The second annual event convenes organizers of pro gaming leagues and competitions to discuss practices and trends, and it's headed up by Frank Sliwka, recently announced as director of GDC Europe. For the first time, there will be a series of lectures addressing high school and university students, teachers, parents, politicians and media representatives. General managers and coaches will be offered additional workshops on law and marketing. The event will host a meeting with associations, teams and leagues to increase support for eSports on an international level. Having taken over Global Games Media, Think Services Game Group Germany GmbH will continue running the ESCONF as well as organize GDC Europe in Cologne in August. Said business development VP Sliwka: "Given the new constellation following Think Service’s takeover of Global Games Media, we are starting with increased possibilities." "This is already indicated by the extension of the conference program and the series of lectures and workshops. Moreover, eSports Connection will be enlarged and will also continue to increase its importance." Interested parties can find further information on the ESCONF at the event's official site.
