Social Gambling & Gaming Summit is a two-day conference focused on the intersection of casino-style social games, mobile gaming, virtual goods, and the bridge between mainstream social gambling and gaming. This event unites established industry leaders and developers in free-to-play mobile games and social casino games for inspiring keynotes, lively panels, and in-depth discussion on the future of real-money gaming, cross-platform integration, game design, and player conversion. The stakes for mastering the business and technology of successful mobile social gambling have never been higher. By 2015, the social gambling market is predicted to grow to $2.5 billion and the mobile app market is predicted to top $38 billion. The global total spend on virtual goods is expected to reach $4.1 billion by 2016. Will the social casino industry consolidate into a few very large players? How could unexpected regulatory changes or innovation with current legal strictures upend the marketplace? Is the window for small developers to effectively launch a social casino title closing? Our industry insiders will show you how to prepare your business for what’s ahead.
