Nick Fotheringham

The Nerd in Downtown Las Vegas

Mr. Fotheringham has been building gaming communities and throwing one of a kind events for almost two decades. He has organized and built events for industry leaders such as: Microsoft, Nintendo, Blizzard, 343, Twitch, The Pokemon Company and many others. He has planned and executed staging, production and organization for some of the largest events across the United States and Canada. He is a recognizable face within the industry and is even referred to as the "Godfather of esports." Through his work within the community and corporate clients he has gained experience that cannot be bought.  He has the knowledge to deliver in high pressure circumstances. When faced with challenges like Apex 2015, he worked with Nintendo, Twitch and the Smash Brothers community to turn a disaster into a renowned and memorable event. His experience and attention to fine detail has helped create and execute initiatives which have spent months in planning with multiple partners. However, he has also garnered the ability to generate content faster than anyone else in the industry. One such example is the Microsoft PAX Prime Halo Invitational which was created within 6 hours and executed 4 days later. When Twitch had less than 48 hours to plan and produce the staging for Smash@PAX, they called Mr. Fotheringham without hesitation. He can plan and execute content no matter the size, scope, budget or time constraint. It is this knowledge, expertise and long-standing reputation that forged strong relationships within the greater esports community including professional players, developers, publishers and community managers across all genres of gaming.

Now as part owner of The Nerd night club in Vegas he is bringing a new twist to nightlife entertainment. The Nerd brings comic con culture and the Esports world under one roof for all to enjoy nightly.
