Have you ever considered working in video games or esports? Would you know how to get a foot in the door or which sectors would be the best fit for you? We are offering a handful of students the opportunity to find out how to break into one of the most exciting and fast growing entertainment industries.
Esports is a rapidly growing industry and you don’t have to be a professional player to get involved. There are hundreds of jobs ranging from development, marketing and production. Super Evil Megacorp, the makers of the #1 mobile esport Vainglory are hosting the Spring Championships at Building Six at the O2 Arena on May 19th-21st. The live professional gaming tournament will see the top 12 teams from Europe and North America compete.
Starting at 11:30am on May 20th a handful of students will be able to take part in an exclusive backstage tour where you can find out exactly what it takes to put on a tournament of this scale. Students will also be invited to take part in a seminar with key players from the industry. We will have a range of spokespeople available to talk to from the CEO of Super Evil Megacorp through to Tournament Producers and Marketing and Graphic Design professionals. We will also have talent available including shoutcasters, a lot of whom came through The NUEL. Find out how they got their chance to be in the spotlight.
Only 25 spaces are available. Please register your interest and the sectors you would like to find out more about. Each student will also be given access to each day of the tournament.
