Coming in Fall 2020
The Institute for People and Technology and the Georgia Tech Athletic Association are pleased to invite you to our inaugural Sports Symposium and Esports Invitational at Coda at Tech Square. This invitation-only event will bring together campus and sports industry leaders for a day-long look at the topic of sports innovation. Engage in keynote talks and panel discussions on athlete health and wellbeing, wearables, analytics, fan engagement, operations, esports, and more. We're also excited to welcome our keynote speaker Dr. Marcus Elliott, founder and CEO of P3, the country's premier sports analytics company.
In the afternoon, esports teams from local universities (Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Morehouse College, UGA) will compete in a tournament hosted by Georgia-based Skillshot Media. The global, billion-dollar esports industry has grown tremendously over the past decade and now's your chance to see a live competition in action. We'll showcase the game Brawlhalla developed by Atlanta-based Blue Mammoth games.
