Competitive gaming develops a range of facilities, from pros to the grassroots
The growth of esports secured it a spot at Pacnet this year, as three people with different views of competitive gaming’s facilities landscape contributed to the discussion.
Rob joined VenuesNow in early 2018 after 19 years at Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal. Before that he made stops at newspapers in Charlotte, N.C.; Charlottesville, Va.; Lexington, Ky; and the Kansas City area, in addition to selling clothing and working in a baseball card store (for cards rather than money). He loves good stories, good writing and working with good people. Rob lives and dies with his Kansas Jayhawks and treasures his time with his wife and two daughters, who are all pretty awesome.
