Mission Statement

For the third time, the GERMAN ESPORTS SUMMIT will take place as part of gamesweekberlin on October 28 & 29, 2020. Just one small difference: it’s all online.

Of course, eSports is always about fun and competition. But this year, the GERMAN ESPORTS SUMMIT is mainly focused on the motto „sustainability“. We look at how we can preserve what we have achieved so far, what lessons we can learn from the past and what challenges eSports will face in the future. Both economically and socially.


The #GES20 brings together pro teams, amateur sports and esports clubs, sports associations, politics and policy makers, as well as science and business in carefully curated presentations and panel discussions.

Hosted with English and German conference parts, the GERMAN ESPORTS SUMMIT 2020 emphasizes on the international character of eports and becomes a central networking hotspot for the European movement. In this year’s edition, #GES20 is publicly available for all on Twitch.
The broadcasting timetable is still in the works and will soon be displayed on this website.

Business matchmaking and networking is offered through gamesweekberlin PRO X (tickets available).

Focus Topics

Sustainability in eSports:

  • eSports, an election campaign issue?
  • eSports and Gaming during Corona times
  • Diversity in eSports
