The explosion of eSports has taken the venue industry by storm, and has the potential to surpass stick-and-ball sports revenues in a matter of years. No longer are venues built solely for traditional team tenants. Emerging events from eSports to Drone Racing are filling venues on non-game days, and even warranting the building of custom venues of their own. Are you building, renovating, and providing hospitality with this in mind, and capitalising on the way the game is changing to maximise utilisation and potential?
