College Esports Expo 2020 to highlight how eSports are changing at the collegiate level
Colleges and universities across the country continue to adopt permanent eSports programs
The eSports industry is expanding so much that several colleges already have their own eSports programs to attract students, and this has become a trend. Showcasing the efforts since 2017, the next iteration of the College Esports Expo is just around the corner, ready to be held in Boston. This forum will discuss all the aspects around the eSports sector and all the growth opportunities.
Emerson College students and faculty members are behind the creation of this forum, which is returning for the third time. Kurt Melcher, a strategic advisor at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), is one of the main speakers in this event, and the upcoming expo will also see participation by a group of executives from FaZe Clan.
They will be there to share all the adversities and complications that can come from being on top of the eSports industry, along with other key speakers, such as leaders from the US Army, Division One Esports administrators, some other coaches and eSports players that come from all levels and pioneers in the sector and many others.
The website for the event is already updated with the panel topics that will be addressed during the expo. Topics include best practices for eSports wellness and the creation of curricula to engage high school students, among others. The College Esports Expo is scheduled to begin on February 26 at 9:00 AM at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel, which is located at 50 Park Plaza. It does require the purchase of tickets, but the good thing is that anyone who is interested in attending is free to do so.
