ESWC Summer 2017
On 1st and 2nd July, Bordeaux Events hosts the eSport World Convention’s Summer Session 2017 at the Bordeaux Congress Centre.
Created in 2003, the eSport World Convention (ESWC) is a leading international event for electronic sports organised by the Webedia group. The ESWC consists of a number of videogame tournaments which bring together the best players in the world and their fans with competitions in the form of real-life shows.
With more than 8,000 people expected in attendance, this international eSports event is part of the growing videogame dynamic, something that the Bordeaux metropolitan area is looking to get involved in.
Bordeaux Congress Centre, with a surface area of 12,000m2, will be set up to accommodate the 8,000 expected guests, made up of the players and an enthusiastic audience, in the perfect venue. Enthusiasm for the ESWC echoes the Bordeaux Geek Festival, which attracted nearly 28,000 people to the Bordeaux Exhibition Centre in May, and whose programme also featured an eSport event.
The Bordeaux Events team is well-versed in hosting innovative competitions which gather up to several thousand spectators, from the WorldSkills national final in March, which 70,000 people attended, to the World Billiards Championship at the end of 2016 with 46 players from 24 countries and more than 2,000 visitors.
