The ULT CULT is starting to spread across North America.

ULT Cult

ULT brand launching at Zumiez retail stores

We are excited to share the news that ULT brand will be available at Zumiez stores across the country.  ULT as a lifestyle brand for gaming and esports draws inspiration from streetwear and action sports, so Zumiez was a wonderful fit for us to debut at retail locations.  In support of the launch we are introducing the ULT Cult campaign.  ULT Cult is a movement, a grassroots groundswell of our most passionate fans and community members interacting with the brand at the store level.

ULT Cult is for everyone and welcomes new recruits with pretty incredible rewards: VIP experiences and fly away opportunities to join the ULT squad for epic pool parties, music performances and esports competitions during our E/AZ events at Talking Stick Resort in Arizona this summer.  Sponsor brands from the gaming and esports scene, HyperX and DX Racer, will also be contributing awesome giveaway items for ULT Cult members.  ULT is all about lifestyle and community so we are completely excited to bring our first ever national campaign to you and offer such incredible products at Zumiez stores in your local area as well as promotional items from best in class endemic gaming sponsor brands.

UMV @ Esports Activate

UMV on stage at first ever Esports upfronts

Esports Activate, the first esports upfronts event, was held in New York City at the Sony Playstation Theater in Times Square.  Special thank you to Imari Oliver for the invite to enable UMV to showcase our original content IP slate of media inventory to a packed theater of leading brands, mainstream media, traditional ad agency buyers, team owners, league operators and industry leaders.

UMV @ Esports Activate

UMV’s president Chris Mann and co-founder Nate Eckman presented our original content initiatives and integration opportunities including: Digital Hero, LEGACY, Troll Patrol and Player Omega.

“It was great to welcome UMV to take the stage at Esports Activate to showcase their amazing platform at the premier immersive entertainment, education and sales experience. Their presentation was designed to help marketers, brands and media understand the breadth of opportunities to engage with high-value audiences that are increasingly difficult to reach through traditional channels.”
