About us

Since the beginning of influencer media, a disconnect has existed between Sponsors, Influencers and Fans, particularly in gaming. Opera Event is a company created by gaming media veterans who are dedicated to bridging this gap.

We commit to helping influencers capture the value of their audience, giving fans the best engagement tools and providing sponsors with a programmatic and scalable solution for influencer media. We do this with our Influencer Management Platform (IMP) and our Quest Mode sponsorship solution.
