Our second to last event for 2011 is an exciting one, and you only have a couple of days notice (apologies)
Over the last two years the world has gone casual gaming mad, with 5 million hours of Angry Birds being played every day and 200M people playing Facebook games for over 40mins each per month. Facebook is set to make a huge $1B from gaming in an industry set to make an incredible $70B in 2015.
This broad adoption of gaming has driven the rise of branded gaming & gamification as a marketing strategy. At this event we dive into the opportunities, examples & challenges for brands entering the gaming world.
We have an esteemed panel that will cover:
- Media opportunities in social gaming on Farmville (Zynga) & Pop Cap
- The process & thinking around game creation & gamification
- How to integrate gaming into marketing strategies
This event is a limited ticket release due to the venue size.
