Description

As COVID has driven everyone indoors, gaming has exponentially increased its dominance as a social place for fun and belonging. But increasingly, it’s emerging as unique sales channel for savvy marketers looking to engage new audiences. From fashion brands like Marc Jacobs making outfits in Animal Crossing to Fortnite’s debut as a music venue and screening room, anyone looking to reach the world of gamers has more and more options.

In this session, Jamin Warren, CEO & Founder of Twofivesix, will explore how to engage consumers by leveraging gaming as a dynamic marketing channel.
