Intel Extreme Masters (IEM), a world-renowned esports tournament, will kick off in Beijing’s Haidian district this November. IEM events will enjoy long-term development in the city due to a three-year deal signed during the just concluded China International Fair for Trade in Services.
IEM is the world’s first comprehensive esports tournament series, and has become the most famous of its kind over the past 10 years. The event is highly influential, especially in the field of esports.
In addition, Haidian district will also hold the global finals of the VR Esports Global Competition, the first professional virtual reality esports event in China. The finals will be broadcasted via 5G and 8K ultra high definition technologies, becoming the first of its kind in the world using such techs. This will fill the gaps of China’s VR esports competition.
It is estimated that no less than 200 million yuan will be invested to support cultural and creative startups in Haidian district.
