Gamesquare Esports Inc.’s Collision Tech Conference is underway in Toronto, Canada, and the main event was Gamesquare CEO Justin Kenna presenting onstage with Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back and Complexity Stars Team member, Leonard Fournette. Also joining the panel was Marissa Roberto, host of Digital SportsCentre at TSN Sports. The trio’s discussion topic was “The Perfect Match: How Gaming Connects Athletes to Next-Gen Fans.”
“Collision 2022 is one of the fastest growing tech conferences in North America,” said Kenna prior to the event. “The event had more than 140,000 virtual attendees over the last two years with more than 33,000 expected for this year’s in-person event. I am excited to be joined by one of the NFL’s most dynamic players and a member of our Complexity Stars team. The Complexity Stars team is the first of its kind, bringing together professional athletes and celebrities who are also gamers under one organization. We believe that the convergence of sports, entertainment, gaming, and esports is happening faster than people appreciate and GameSquare, Complexity Gaming, GCN, Cut+Sew, Code Red, and Fourth Frame Studios intend to remain at the forefront of this important industry trend.”
The event ran from June 20th to the 23rd and had more than 33,000 people in attendance, 600 presenters, 1,250+ start-ups, 1,200+ journalists, and 800+ investors from more than 40 countries.
This was the first in-person Collision Tech Conference in two years, and was held at the Enercare Centre in Toronto.
