Esports an industry that will help fuel Las Vegas economy, experts say

Seth Schorr, a committee member and CEO of Fifth Street Gaming, said at a UNLV-hosted panel last month that there’s more room for esports to grow as the city welcomes more sports entertainment.

“When we started the esports narrative in 2015, we weren’t a sports city and it so happens that now we are,” said Schorr. “So, esports being an extension of what Las Vegas is now — we are no longer a one-trick pony but many tricks. We are now in a sports city and esports is a perfect evolution of that.”
