We are the international trade association for esports business leaders.

The Esports Trade Association (ESTA) is the international trade association for business-to-business esports companies that have earned leadership status by virtue of their sales volume, innovation or aspiration. We convene decision-makers to collaborate and gain from each other’s experience. We advance the industry through education and promote operational excellence and innovation. And through research and thought leadership, we propel developments that foster both economic growth and sustainability.

Our aim is bold but simple: to elevate a dynamic industry by transforming the environment in which esports companies operate.
