We are attending GamesBeat 2015 in San Francisco, October 12-13. Maarten Noyons will moderate the breakout session “How to cater to gaming’s whales”. Panelists are Dmitri Williams (Ninja Metrics), Jefferson Valadares (Bandai Namco), Patrick Walker (EEDGAR).
Social and mobile gamers who spend money in free-to-play games are a rare breed. Less than 5 percent of players spend money in free-to-play titles. Those who do are “whales,” and every company jealously guards them. We’ll talk with whales and other experts about how to hunt whales without killing them.
Now in its seventh year, GamesBeat 2015 is bringing together over 500 top execs, investors, analysts, and entrepreneurs from the hottest companies to explore the gaming industry’s latest trends, growth opportunities, technical directions, and newest monetization opportunities. We’ll focus on the international explosion of gaming and what it takes to create a sustainable business by reaching and retaining your game’s users.
