The third edition of the eSports tournament has commenced, with 12 gaming teams from 11 markets in the region competing for glory and the right to Asia’s gaming crown

Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), the world’s leading PC and smart device manufacturer, has announced the kick-off of its Legion of Champions Series III (LoC III) Grand Finals. In partnership with Intel, this eSports competition will bring together over 60 gaming talents from 11 markets across Asia Pacific, as they seek to be crowned 2019’s LoC III champions.

This year’s tournament is the biggest one yet, including first-time competitors India, Japan and Korea, in addition to Hong Kong / Macau, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailandand Vietnam. After multiple elimination rounds at the local level, in-market winners will face-off in an intense international showdown at Central Plaza Ladprao, Bangkok, from 25-27 January, 2019.

“LoC is a testament to Lenovo’s ongoing commitment to foster Asia’s gaming community. With eSports’ meteoric rise in legitimacy and influence in the region, our initiatives seek to further connect like-minded enthusiasts and empower the next generation of gamers,” said Ken Wong, President, Lenovo Asia Pacific. “Lenovo Legion was designed with gamers’ needs in mind and we will continue to provide the most exciting and relevant gaming experiences and devices.”

“With the rapid growth in Esports and gaming in Asia, Intel continues to support the industry through partnerships with the ecosystem, including global and regional gaming leagues such as Legion of Champions (LoC) with Lenovo, and provide the gaming community with the best-in-class gaming experience powered by Intel technologies,” said George Chacko, Global Account Director for Lenovo,Asia Pacific and Japan.

During the previous LoC, which was held earlier this year, the tournament had welcomed participation from close to 7,000 gamers and 20,000 on-site attendees. Such events have become crucial and valuable moments for Lenovo to interact with the community and better understand their gaming needs and motivations. The evolution of Lenovo Legion has been driven by feedback from the gaming community itself, with its latest innovations offering purposeful design to match the needs of the modern avid gamer – stylish and sophisticated on the outside, yet savage on the inside, delivering supreme performance for work and play.

“LoC has become an annual highlight of Asia’s gaming calendar, and we are thrilled to be a part of it for the first time,” said Rahul Agarwal, CEO and Managing Director, Lenovo India. “Our gaming product Legion has come a long way in nurturing the gaming community in India by providing them the chance to compete in an international championship.”

Local champions and grand finalists will be competing for a total combined prize pool of USD$35,000(approximately INR 25,16,000) – the largest of any LoC tournament yet. At the end of the competition, the winning team will walk away with USD$7,000 and USD$5,000 worth of Legion Y530 notebooks, while the first and second runners-up will take home USD$3,000 and USD$2,000, respectively.

Ric Edelman, one of the nation’s most prominent financial advisors and creator of The Advisor Blockchain and Cryptoassets Council, held the third meeting of this growing group of influencers on March 20 at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.

Firms presenting at the event included Multicoin Capital, Bitgo, Digital Assets Data, FRST Corporation, ZenLedger, Gemini and Perkins Coie.

Immediately following the morning meeting, ABCC partnered with Barron’s to stage the Blockchain and Cryptoasset pre-event, in conjunction with the Barron’s Top Independent Advisor Summit. The event offered Continuing Education Credits to those in attendance.

Nearly 80% of the financial advisors attending the event said they know little to nothing about blockchain and cryptoassets, and 97 percent said they do not recommend cryptoassets to clients.

“The lack of knowledge by so many of the nation’s leading financial advisors demonstrates the urgency of teaching advisors about this important emerging asset class,” said Edelman, who has been named three times by Barron’s as the nation’s #1 Independent Financial Advisor. He noted that 80 percent of the advisors surveyed said clients are asking them about cryptoassets and added, “Advisors who can’t answer their clients’ questions about bitcoin will lose credibility with their clients, and they may end up losing the clients.”

Edelman gathered experts from many of the leading firms in the field. Kingdom Trust was the premiere sponsor. Additional sponsors included Bitwise Investments, Blockforce Capital, Fidelity Digital Assets, Grayscale Investments, Orion Advisor Services, Pantera Capital, State Street Global Advisors and Van Eck.

ABCC is developing additional conferences. To learn more, go to www.advisorbcc.com.

Suzy, a leading consumer insights platform that provides “actionable insights at the speed of culture,” asked U.S. consumers where they are most likely to first hear about the latest in healthy food trends. The results, powered by the platform’s on-demand network of more than one million consumers, may surprise you. Regardless of their interest in health, all survey respondents are most likely to hear about the latest in healthy food trends from their friends, family or social media, as opposed to television, blogs, magazines or online news sources.

Below are Suzy’s in-depth findings on the ways consumers are most likely to first hear about healthy food trends.

Suzy says healthy eaters are most likely to learn about the latest healthy food trends via the following:

  1. Facebook – 17 percent
  2. Instagram – 15 percent
  3. Friends or Family – 13 percent
  4. Blogs – 8 percent
  5. Television – 8 percent

Non-healthy eaters are most likely to learn about the latest healthy food trends via the following:

  1. Facebook – 20 percent
  2. Friends or Family – 19 percent
  3. Instagram – 10 percent
  4. Online News Sources – 10 percent
  5. Television – 10 percent

“These results highlight the power that the collective voice of consumers has in today’s marketplace,” said Matt Britton, founder & CEO of Suzy. “When social networks play a larger role in alerting consumers to healthy food trends than traditional media outlets, you can see how important it is to create products, packaging, brands and advertisements that truly resonate with your target audience, and inspire them to share the information with others.”

Called the “Siri for brands,” Suzy is a consumer intelligence platform that unlocks critical consumer insights to help organizations make better and more informed decisions—faster. Like having a focus group right in your pocket, Suzy brings the voice of real consumers directly to brands within minutes, so they can better understand their customers.

The platform currently serves some of the biggest brands in the world, including Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Citibank, Verizon, Nintendo and Nestle. These leading companies validate critical assumptions with Suzy, so they can focus on creating compelling new products, developing effective marketing strategies, and validating direct offers that increase conversions and drive growth.

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Suzy on survey was run from Feb 27-28. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
