Valve showed the companies running DPC 2023 qualifiers in CN, EEU, and SEA. They will supposedly run the following leagues as well. Relevant information appeared in the Dota 2 client.

Perfect World will continue to operate in China. Epulze will host the competition in South-East Asia, while the Eastern European broadcast will be run by Paragon. There's no information on the rest of the regions yet.

Paragon is an unknown new company registered in Germany. Their CEO, Aleksander Zavoloka, commented about their work on the Liquipedia Discord chat. Rumor had it that Paragon was a new iteration of Epic Esports Events. Apparently, Aleksander came out to dismiss it.

Zavoloka is an old-time esports figure who was once editor-in-chief of Fnatic and made the first two EPICENTER tournaments for Epic Esports Events, together with Mark "March3llo" Averbukh. The latter was released from the head position in EEE just a day ago.
