Gaming is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and is now bigger than the music and movie industries combined. Although almost all young people are gaming every day, stadiums are sold out and more and more companies are investing large sums of money in gaming and esports, gaming still has a negative image among many people.
Using gaming to get people moving
H20 Esports wants to change that. "We believe gaming is a bridge to all kinds of new forms of tech and education. In esports, people are always looking for new innovative ways to push boundaries. H20's vision is to bring the best out of esports players. The H20 Esports campus is specifically designed to make the most of the talent of these top athletes," said Martijn van der Craats, CEO H20.
BDO commits to the gaming festival as name giver. "From our Top Sports Desk, we are ready to relieve top (e)sportsmen of worries in the field of administration and taxation, among other things, so that they can be as busy as possible with what it is really all about, top (e)sports," emphasize Maaike Waaijer and Michel Pattiasina of the Technology, Media and Telecom branch group at BDO.
The professional gaming tournaments will be played at the Rabo Esports Stadium of the H20 Esports Campus in Purmerend, a permanent venue for esports and gaming events. For more information or to book your tickets visit h20.gg/festival.
