E-Sport now and in the Future by Steve Sheridan
E-blue is a Hong Kong based business started in 1999. They have grown to one of the largest computer gaming gear manufacturers in the world. We make everything for LAN centers from Chairs to desks and peripherals and computers. We also custom design LAN centers to include deco and stages for competitions and tournaments. We are working with several businesses and Universities to help them realize the potential of E-sports. We have opened over 300 LAN centers in Asia and Europe. Now we are expanding in to North America and Latin America as there is great demand for our services in these areas.
I have worked in the computer industry since the late 1980s working for a major electronics company in Los Angeles for 13 years. At that time everything was converting to printing, scanning and CAD from just copying. Home computers were just emerging in large numbers after windows 3.1 was released. Internet was in it's infancy.
After moving to Phoenix in 1999 I worked for a company that sold custom servers and computers for B to B. I worked in technical sales mostly for mass storage products and software.
I moved on and worked as a consultant for another company involved in mass storage research before retiring.
I was retired for a few years until I met Gary Lo who was leading the E-blue expansion to North America. I thought I would help out and then go quietly back in to retirement. I became very excited about the future of esports while working with E-blue and decided to take the position as their sales manager. I am still excited about it and proud to be a part of it. What you can see now as a casual observer is just the small tip of a very large iceberg.
