CEO of organiser Branded, Jasper Donat says, “Branded has been streaming live shows for over a decade and virtual events for the past two years. So we are so excited to be able to bring the live and virtual worlds together and produce Gaming Matters as a global hybrid event where people can attend and interact with each other either live “in real life” or online. 

Of all the sports and entertainment verticals where Branded is involved Gaming has certainly seen the greatest growth, diversification and excitement throughout the last two years. 

Most of all, I can’t wait to get out of the house, put a lanyard around my neck for the first time in two years and welcome everyone to the show.”
