Singapore has the potential to become a regional hub for Esports. The upcoming Asia Esports Festival is set to enliven the Esports scene in Singapore and the region. In time to come, I am confident that we will build a thriving Esports ecosystem, and nurture more Singaporean Esports talents!

The inaugural AEF 2021 is scheduled to be held from December 3 to December 5 at Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre and promises to provide the ultimate multi-sensory experience with the latest games, merchandise, accessories and a fun-filled Esports exploration for all ages.

The AEF will travel to other key gate-way cities across Asia including Shenzhen (China), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Jakarta (Indonesia), Bangkok (Thailand), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), after the inaugural launch in Singapore.

Singaporean event organiser, UnUsUal Productions, has been chosen to oversee the event organisation and technical aspects for all of AEF events.

According to EEA Co-Chairman Roland Ong, with the appointment of UnUsUaL Productions, they will plan to make AEF a regional event touring different countries in Asia, namely, Shenzhen (China), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Jakarta (Indonesia), Bangkok (Thailand) and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) after the launch in December.

EEA is a Singapore-based company set up in 2019 with the vision to build a comprehensive eco-system for Esports in Singapore as well as for the Asia region.
