Rimini, 12 January 2023 - Rimini Amusement Show looks to the future with EspoGame, the new exhibition section dedicated to the world of Esports, gaming and web3. Over 25 companies involved, dozens of speakers and industry experts, hundreds of visitors and enthusiasts, conferences, panels and meetings will enrich what promises to be the reference B2B event for the entire supply chain in Italy.

Osservatorio Italiano Esports, Sport Digital House and Italian Exhibition Group organize two days dedicated to the competitive video games and digital entertainment sector: EspoGame builds on the legacy of the last two editions of the Esports Business Days, which represented the first B2B event format for operators in the Esports sector in Italy.

With the 2023 edition, the event enters a next level, expanding the activities to all facets of the sector: gamification, blockchain, NFT, metaverse and trends related to web 3.0.

Training, inspiration, networking and business are the key principles that will accompany EspoGame: an event dedicated to the contamination between gaming and web3, in which operators in these sectors can get to know each other, exchange ideas and meet the brands that are investing. Experts who will give inspirational TED-style speeches on a dedicated stage, startups and companies, potential customers and investors will instead be the protagonists who will animate the scheduled meetings and conferences.

The next edition of EspoGame will also present a unique innovation in the panorama of B2B events. It will be possible to access the Creative Center: a space where networking becomes a concrete business opportunity. The companies that will be part of it will not only present themselves, as in normal one-to-one meetings, but will also have the opportunity to discuss the needs of the brands in order to present project proposals directly.

The picture is completed by customized stands available to the brands and legal corners to explore the legal and regulatory aspects of the industry, making available to all visitors the widest offer to discover and explore the worlds of Esports, Gaming and web3.
Barilla, Red Bull, Dolce & Gabbana, eBay, LG, RAI, Acer, Xiaomi are just some of the prestigious brands that have confirmed their participation in EspoGame through authoritative speakers to tell their case histories. In addition, with the ´business match making´ model, new companies and startups will be able to present their projects to them and thus attract potential investors.

EspoGame will be one of the most important moments of reflection and inspiration of the year on the gaming and web3 fields, thanks to the presence of some of the most important experts in these sectors such as: Fabio Viola (one of the top Italian gamification experts), Fortuna Imperatore (among the most innovative profiles in the game design field), Micaela Romanini (founder of Women in Games Italia) and others who will be revealed in the coming weeks.
