The Gathering April ’22

Location: Platform, Shoreditch, London.

Our esports gatherings have quickly become recognised in the esports sector as authentic network events to form new connections and meet up with our contacts and friends in the sector.

This month we returned to London and hosted our largest event to date at Shoreditch gaming bar, Platform. The same week as leading egaming conference, ICE London, we received attendees from around the globe from the esports, eGaming and videogame industries. The venue was packed out with a mix of C level decision makers, Org owners, pro players and esports students.

Hosted by Chris Kissack, our resident esports professional and recognised name in the industry and joined by Affinity team members from our eGaming division, the evening was a great success. While we keep the Affinity esports Gatherings relaxed, free from sales pitches and lengthy presentations, we did get the chance to discuss what we can offer in esports, including our bespoke services and previous experience in esports and gaming.

We hear from Chris on what he has to say about this month’s Gathering,

“We could not be happier with the turnout for this months Gathering, especially as it took place during one of the busiest weeks of the year in the betting and eGaming calendar. This really was a great opportunity to bring people together from both esports and the betting space in a venue that had both room to relax and network but also areas to play some video games. Platform is the perfect location to do this in London. There were a lot of parties held that week, the majority of them being ‘champagne and canapé’ types of events, which is not exactly the sort of vibe esports and video gaming folks are comfortable at. It is important to us that our esports gatherings are not pretentious and we swap the bubbly and food on sticks for beer’s and fresh oven baked pizzas. The feedback on the night was that we definitely live up to our groups motto, ‘a personal approach to corporate and trust services.’ ”
