So, your local game store has asked you to run an event online, or maybe you want to expand the reach of a store you help run, or you want to provide an opportunity that organizers in your area aren’t providing your players. Maybe you want to get into the world of esports, and start an event company yourself.

In a world without live, or in-person events, migrating to digital events can be a daunting task for even the most experienced event organizer.
