eSports Online Business Meetup to be Held

The Fukuoka eSports Association (FeA) would like to announce an online business meetup.

The “Q1 Super Tournament” was held on March 6th (Sat), with players from eight prefectures in Kyushu and Okinawa participating, and online streaming was conducted on March 7th (Sun).
The Q1 Super Tournament is an e-sports tournament to determine the “best player in Kyushu,” and at the same time, it aims to be a “community-based” tournament.

As one of our efforts, we staged the final game at Miyachitake Shrine in Fukutsu City, Fukuoka Prefecture.
We also received a lot of support and sponsorship from local governments and companies, and we look back on the event as one that was filled with a variety of expectations.

With this background in mind, the first part of this meetup will be a talk session with guests on the theme of “Affinity Between Regional Revitalization and e-Sports.”
We will be asking the sponsors, participants, and collaborators about their reasons for getting involved in the tournament, their aims, and how the environment has changed through the tournament.
We will also be asking the participants how they feel about the affinity between regional revitalization and e-sports. The goal is to provide the participants with hints for their future business.

In the second part of the session, we are considering business matching opportunities based on a preliminary questionnaire survey of participants.

We look forward to seeing you there.
