The #worldconnected series is GEF’s community-oriented event. This series, inspired by the GEF values, consists of esports competitions delivered by Member Federations and supported by GEF + GEFcon - global thought leadership.
The GEF determines the format for each WCS edition according to the global events calendar.
GEFcon is our global convention of thought leaders. Attendees enjoy access to exclusive content developed with participation of influential thought leaders and experts in reflection on the dynamic, growing esports ecosystem.
In addition, each year, a series of World Fora (each a GEF World Forum) creates leadership and lighthouse activities around core GEF strategic themes.
