Overview The Professional Gamer is a relatively new profession that has seen rapid evolution over the last 20 years. The experience of a professional gamer from the late 90s is similar in many ways to today's players, yet very different as technology and economic sustainability have seen dramatic growth. On this panel, former professional gamers will share their experiences during their era of pro gaming, speak to the future of this emerging profession and industry, and discuss how organizations can best support a critical stakeholder in their title's success.
