The Mobile Growth Association (MGA) has announced that they’re adding the live format as an option for attendance to their upcoming September 30 event, MGS Games. The MGA is an organization built around the mobile marketing and development community. MGS Games will be physically hosted in San Francisco, California at the SF Jazz Center venue, and it will also be hosted online as well.
From the MGS official blog post, this is how the MGA looks at this upcoming event:
“We at Mobile Growth Association are looking forward to bringing the mobile gaming community back together after over a year apart,” says Jen Laloup – Co-Founder, Chairwoman & CEO. “We will explore the gaming community’s challenges, triumphs, and everything in between at our first hybrid event — MGS GAMES We will gather — safely, of course — in a physical space in San Francisco, as well as online. By hosting these progressive events, we offer the Mobile Games Community a chance to share knowledge and network globally. MGS GAMES attendees from around the world will be able to learn from the best industry professionals in the game and share in a way like never before.”
So far speakers include leaders from Glu Mobile, GamesBeat, 5×5 Gaming, Fandom, with more industry veterans certain to be announced soon. Virtual and live attendees can expect plenty of discussions around the tricky, rapidly evolving spaces of mobile gaming engagement and monetization of audiences. On-site attendees can likely expect certain perks — like face-to-face networking, breakfast and lunch and happy hours — that many folks may have missed over the last year
The MGA joins a growing list of event planners opening their doors to live and online attendees to offer a virtual or physical attendance option. For $99, a virtual pass option with on-demand access of content will be available on August 2. Otherwise, a range of attendee passes are available from $199 to $3,000.
