The LOGIN conference is just a few days away! The agenda was posted this morning in full here, and the keynote speaker was announced, Kevin Chou. This is one single-day conference you do not want to miss for its conference networking opportunities!
Kevin Chou is co-founder and CEO of Kabam, the western world leader in free-to-play mobile games for traditional players.

He has secured partnerships with leading game platforms, as well as with Hollywood studio giants such as Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, MGM, and NBCUniversal for games based on some of the world’s most beloved movie franchises. Under Kevin’s leadership, Kabam has raised more than $125 million in capital from venture and strategic investors including Google, Intel, Canaan, Redpoint, Pinnacle, SK Telecom, Warner Brothers, and MGM.
