What is Esports BAR?

Esports BAR gathers industry leaders to shape the future together - a future that is bright!

Esports BAR is part of Reed MIDEM, the world-leading organiser of entertainment content events.  Our roots stretch deep into the world of entertainment.  

In 2017, Esports BAR Cannes launched onto the scene as a three-day event taking place each year in February, in the same venue as the iconic Cannes Film Festival.  Then followed Esports BAR Miami, held each September as a four-day event.  We like to follow the sun!

The global health crisis threw a curveball.  We responded swiftly, taking Esports BAR Miami online in September 2020 to hold our first fully digital, four-day edition: Esports BAR+ Americas. 

On-going uncertainty over Covid-19, combined with a desire to provide Esports BAR clients with face-to- face interaction, has encouraged us to move Esports BAR Cannes from February to October in 2021. The event will take place alongside MIPCOM, the world’s leading entertainment content market.

What's The Mission of Esports BAR?

At Esports BAR, we're committed to transforming the sport of the digital generation into the future of entertainment by providing esports industry leaders with the most efficient and meaningful B2B events!

Esports BAR offers unique events where the very best of esports leaders & companies meet face to face to define their strategies, and to negotiate deals for sponsorships, franchise partnerships, broadcasting rights, content, merchandising, licensing and much more.
