NAG & rAge formed The rAge eSports initiative in 2016 that provided a platform to grow on the emerging eSports community in South Africa. The initiative’s main mission was to grow the already massive eSports fan-base by promoting local eSports tournaments, various competitions, and events to the various games and other parties that want to get involved in eSports locally and internationally. With this initiative, a new eSports Branding Summit was launched alongside rAge in 2016 in partnership with the Global Assembly Marketing eSports or GAMeS. The summit has not been confirmed for 2017 yet
The summit has not been confirmed for 2017 yet, we will provide the necessary communications once we have received confirmation.
