Esports goes mainstream, Esports BAR celebrates the game changers!
In February 2018, The Game Shakers: the one and only truly international awards event to reward outstanding professionals for bringing esports to mainstream audiences was launched.
The first edition was a success, with leading esports professionals/companies represented on the jury and as winners: Activision, Coca-Cola, Disney, Lagardère, Turner, ESL, Twitch, Fnatic… (See our 2018 ceremony)
We are back for a new edition, to be held on February 12, 2019 in Cannes to highlight the business initiatives that have reached mainstream audiences this year and that have helped esports get a wider recognition and credibility amongst the non-endemic world.
The Formula 1 legend Jean Alesi - one of the most popular drivers ever to race for Ferrari - is the Game Shakers 2019 Ambassador. Since May 2018, he runs a new esport structure dedicated to sim-racing, the ‘Jean Alesi Esports Academy.’
The Academy’s purpose is to find, attract and train new talent in order to bring them to the top of their game and maximize their competitive potential.
It gives every racing-enthusiast the chance to realize their dream of becoming a professional esports athlete and, above all, an opportunity to break the barrier between virtual and reality sports, and help esports reach mainstream audiences.
The Game Shakers finalists are nominated by an international jury composed of acknowledged leaders from the esports sector:
