Gaming has become the most popular entertainment industry both in time and money spent, with well over $40 billion in revenue in North America alone. In the past year, Google, Apple, and Amazon have leveled up their gaming strategies alongside heavy hitters Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. This multi-billion dollar industry is constantly changing, including mobile games, triple-A titles, and the rapid emergence of esports.


With the industry's unparalleled increase in popularity, determining how best to work within the ecosystem can often be a layered and complicated process. Join us for the ThinkLA Gaming Breakfast on Oct. 15 as industry professionals and thought leaders discuss how the landscape has changed, which opportunities make the most sense for brands, the rise of the “gaming influencer”, diversity within game development, and a glimpse into the future of gaming. Learn everything you need to know to make the right business decisions across the gaming spectrum, and be prepared to engage in the holy debate of “console vs. PC.” Just kidding; we’ll leave that to the speakers. Game on!
