      Description

      Join us for our fifth Talk at Ten of 2021 on Thursday 20 May. In this month's edition we will delve into West London's strong Esports industry; which is growing rapidly in the UK and globally. 

      A report commissioned by UK Interactive Entertainment in 2020 highlighted the the economic impact of UK esports. As an intersection of technology, creativity, broadcast and entertainment, the esports sector has grown at an annual average rate of 8.5% between 2016 and 2019.

      The sector supported over 1,200 jobs and supported £111.5 million in Gross Value Added (GVA) in 2019. With more people gravitating towards competitive online play during the Covid pandemic and national TV deals already in place, we take a look at how West London communities are embracing the next generation of interactive entertainment.

      Find out more about the esports boom on next week's Talk at Ten.
