The conference will feature a number of expert speakers from companies like Atari, Xbox, Disney Consumer Products, Matel, Twitch, social gaming giant Zynga, etc.
Indie Games Exhibition & Networking Opportunities
Apart from this strictly official part of the conference, Casual Connect will offer much more to those in attendance. First and foremost, there are sixty Indie Prize teams who will be showcasing their independent products. This is a great opportunity for other exhibitors who can recognize the talent and help these companies and individuals take the next step in their business careers.
Like always, there'll be more than enough networking opportunities, with three organized networking parties during the conference. All of these are located near the hotel where Casual Connect will be taking place, making sure no one misses out on all the fun and new business opportunities.
To make things even simpler, all participants will have access to the unique Pitch & Match system allowing everyone to find and reach out to other attendees according to their potential mutual interests and needs.
All in all, Casual Connect USA 2018 has got a lot to offer to everyone involved in the gaming industry and with more than a month still to go before the conference kicks off there is plenty of time to secure your place.
