GameWorks, Inc., an esports and entertainment company, announced today that Company CEO Philip N. Kaplan has been invited to present at The Emergence of esports webinar, presented by Maxim Group and M-Vest on Thursday July 9th, 2020.


GameWorks will participate in a panel discussion on the emergence of esports. In contrast to many other industries that have and continue to experience significant setbacks as a result of COVID-19 – the global pandemic has arguably served as a positive catalyst for the world of esports – an industry that continues to evolve and further expand to new audiences. Before we begin speculating on the future – which we most certainly will – perhaps we should first start by asking: “What exactly is esports and what factors are driving the market? Who are the major players involved and what do they do?”

To access the panel discussion, please RSVP.

  • Panel Session Title: The Emergence of eSports
    • Date and Time:  Thursday, July 9, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time (8:00 a.m. Pacific time)
