ViewSonic branding will be presented throughout HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas, including in the Streamer Room, on the main arena’s 50-foot LED wall, and on the Champions Circle digital display. ViewSonic will receive marketing and promotional support through weekly social media posts and email distributions, as well as logo placement on the venue’s official website. ViewSonic will also receive 30-second spots, billboards and logo rotation during Allied Esports’ weekly community broadcasts produced from HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. Furthermore, ViewSonic will receive a 15-second spot that runs prior to the start of each gaming station session throughout the venue.
“This is a very special time for ViewSonic and ViewSonic Gaming,” said Jeff Volpe, president of ViewSonic Americas. “We’re excited to be a part of the Allied Esports family of sponsors and thrilled that this opportunity will get our world class gaming monitors into the hands of the best gamers from around the globe at the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas. ViewSonic has exciting new ELITE gaming products coming to market later this year. This Allied Esports and HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas sponsorship is just the beginning of our growth and reach in esports and gaming overall.”
ViewSonic is committed to delivering a fun and reliable experience for console and PC gaming. The ELITE gaming monitors are passionately developed and engineered for all gamers, from professionals and enthusiasts to beginners and casual players, to be competitive at all levels.

ViewSonic is dedicated to growing with the gaming industry by offering support within esports through education and by partnering with and sponsoring teams, brands, influencers, and programs throughout the world.
Allied Esports unveiled the new monitors at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas on Saturday, May 15 during the 100th edition of Saturday Night Speedway featuring Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The celebration of the popular weekly event, dubbed “The Most Electrifying Night in Racing,” showcased 72 of the top Mario Kart players from around the country in front of a capacity-limited sellout crowd.
