The two industry leaders have revealed their revolutionary magazine, providing readers with news, expert insight and commentary and exclusive content from the dynamic esports industry
Three issues will be distributed in 2019 with the first available at ESI New York on April 23rd at the Tribeca Rooftop NY. Take a look at the full and final agenda here with tickets also available to purchase here; the digital version of the magazine will be available here from April 23rd.
Global media house, Esports Insider (ESI) and Latin American gaming specialists Latam Media Group (LMG) are today delighted to announce their new joint venture; The Esports Journal.
This industry-focused magazine will be available in digital format and print (at all good esports b2b events near you) and has been created to fill a gap in the market for long-form esports content in a print publication.
Whilst www.esportsinsider.com will continue to produce features regularly, from opinion pieces to interviews, this content will be differentiated somewhat on The Esports Journal providing more in depth and insightful looks into the world of esports.
“This is an idea we’ve toyed with for a while. We’ve been producing daily business-focused content on esportsinsider.com for close to three years now, and then after chats with our Buenos Aires-based friends at LMG, we decided to go ahead,” said Sam Cooke, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Esports Insider. “Maybe I’m being nostalgic for the days of reading Match magazine, and NME, but I do believe there is a space and appetite for an esports industry focused print magazine. We are including a digital version too, so everyone is catered for. The aim with the magazine content is that it’ll be differentiated enough from ESI content in that it’ll be a home for longer form content, more in-depth interviews and insightful opinion pieces. All still industry and business focused, of course. Give us time, and we will deliver on this front.”
Agustin Cikes, Co-Founder and COO at Latam Media Group, said: “At LMG, we are keen supporters of printed magazines; perhaps it ́s as Sam said, I’m being nostalgic because it reminds me of when I read Wired magazine, or simply, the morning newspaper. What I do know is that it’s much more effective to take a magazine home or to the office rather than bookmarking a link.
“For over six years, we’ve been distributing magazines in the Latin American gaming industry, and we’re convinced that it will be beneficial for both companies involved, and the consumers alike.”
“We’ve attended the most important business events in the esports industry, and one thing we noticed was that there was no specialised magazine focused on the industry. So here we are; about to launch a high-quality magazine with fantastic, exclusive content that reaches the most important executives of the industry.”
ESI runs more esports industry events than any other company, with ESI New York being the latest in the lineup of newly revealed events for 2019 and the first ESI event to be held in North America.
