Logitech G engaged UMM to assist in holding an intimate roundtable discussion – titled and themed “Rise of the Gamer” – at Dynasty Karaoke, Sydney. Logitech G products were set up for guests to experience, post-discussion, while the space itself allowed for lively conversation about esports and wider gaming issues, albeit without the stuffiness of a boardroom.
A select group of 26 guests from different areas of the gaming industry attended the lunch forum: tech and gaming media, streamers/influencers, academics, game developers, eSports athletes, online betting experts. Logitech G invited this diverse range of experts to participate in a discussion about innovation, legitimacy, gender, and the future, led by Logitech G’s Global Sr. Manager, Product Management Gaming, Chris Pate, and Logitech’s Cluster Category Manager – ANZ, Kit Williams. As the discussion raged on, a Cantonese banquet was served for guests.
Guests included representatives from such outlets as Channel 7, ABC RN Breakfast, CNET Australia, UNSW, and Red Bull Australia; influencers ChampChong and Deligracy, plus a member of
The Chiefs. Following the roundtable, guests stated they would happily attend a repeat session, deeming this activation an important element in a growing industry. Some of the feedback included:
“Thanks for inviting me to the Logitech roundtable. The discussion was fascinating and I’m sure my ABC commentary work will be informed from what I heard. The lunch was also lovely!”
—Peter Marks, ABC RN Breakfast
—“It was a great event and the food was delicious. Great to see esports and gaming getting the level of focus it deserves from brands like Logitech.”
