Here’s my bio:
Bassem [Bear] Dahdouh has been involved in competitive gaming for nearly his entire life, starting at the grassroots level at an early age in the Middle East where he learned about fighting games at the arcade and helped organize tournaments for his friends. Today, with a passion for video games as strong as ever, Bear is the Esports Manager at Esports Arena Las Vegas where he oversees programming at the first dedicated esports venue on the Las Vegas Strip and the flagship location of Allied Esports’ global network of properties.
Over the last five-plus years, Bear has been at the forefront of the competitive esports events industry, organizing everything from local 20-person tournaments in Las Vegas to the world-renowned Evolution Championship Series (Evo), where he served as Tournament Director, featuring a pool of more than 10,000 competitors.
Bear gained invaluable experience across a variety of games and genres, including Fortnite, PUBG, Hearthstone, League of Legends and Overwatch, while working for the esports platform smash.gg. He has also made a name for himself in the fighting game community as Tournament Director for Genesis (largest Super Smash Bros. winter major), CEO (Community Effort Orlando), COMBO BREAKER, DreamHack, GameTyrant, and a number of other regional and national esports events.
