Content Canada and Subnation have joined forces to launch Gaming Video Content Connect (gvcconnect.com), an annual esports and gaming content summit and market.
GVC Connect will provide a forum for producers, distributors, talent and brands to discuss industry trends, promote programs and acquire original content.
The inaugural event will launch virtually in the summer of 2021, with a view to subsequent years featuring both digital and in-person activities. Details about the event, including dates for the inaugural edition, sponsors and schedule will be announced in the coming weeks.
“In 2020, gaming and esports took center stage, giving rise to new forms of content and growing faster than any other sector in the entertainment industry,” said Doug Scott, co-founder and chief managing director of Subnation. “To support the gaming community and continue propelling the industry forward, we are partnering with one of the leading global content conferences in the world, Content Canada, and launching a digital hub and event forum for creators to collaborate on gaming video content.”
“We recognize the burgeoning opportunities for the content industry being created by the explosive growth of esports and gaming”, said Ferne Cohen, CEO, Content Canada. “This is an exciting collaboration, and we look forward to working with the experts at Subnation to present this first-of-its-kind content conference and market in Canada.”
The mainstream growth of gaming and esports has created both the need, and opportunity, for an industry event dedicated to exploring business partnerships, content strategies and thought leadership. With over 2.8 billion gamers worldwide set to generate revenues of over $189.3 billion in 2021, this new, curated esports and gaming marketplace will provide media and gaming companies, streamers, content creators, and brands with innovative ways to engage with this valuable audience, and embrace the impact gaming is having on the evolving content ecosystem.
