Singapore hosted the first ever Olympic Esports Week (OEW) from June 22-25. The event was an innovative combination of Olympic disciplines and virtual sports and was held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. The OEW featured 10 finals from the Olympic Esports Series 2023, where professional and amateur players from around the world competed in sports including archery, baseball, chess, cycling, dance, motorsport, shooting, taekwondo and tennis.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC), in partnership with Singapore's Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, Sport Singapore and the Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC), welcomed the world to Singapore for this historic milestone, which marked the next step in promoting virtual sports within the Olympic Movement and further connecting with youth and the gaming community.
Panasonic, as TOP partner of the IOC, supported the event with its 30,000-lumen-class 3-Chip DLP™ 4K Projector and 12,000-lumen-class 1-Chip DLP™ projector, broadcast cameras during the Opening Ceremony and as well as its official Gaming Speaker “SoundSlayer”.
