One of the biggest iGaming events of the year is just around the corner: Casual Connect USA, scheduled to take place from July 18-20 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California. This year’s Casual Connect will focus on social casino gaming, with a line-up of nearly 100 speakers from a wide array of companies, including Google, Facebook, Big Fish, Zynga, GSN Games, Microsoft, and more.
Social gaming is gaining more and more popularity throughout the world, and iGaming companies, both new and veteran, are interested in growing this particular area that seems to have unlimited potential. Casual Connect USA will address issues that iGaming companies are dealing with on a very real basis: the state of the current market, changing trends, player retention, marketing, how to expand operations, monetize, and more.
Casual Connect USA will also offer networking events, during which attendees, who are iGaming professionals, will have the opportunity to connect with each other and forge valuable partnerships that can stand them in good stead in the future. There will be networking events every day of the conference.
Developers and Newbies
There will also be a Developer Showcase, which offers young developers the chance to gain exposure and learn how to succeed in the new games ecosystem. Additionally, the 2016 Indie Prize Awards will take place at Casual Connect USA, during which selected teams will showcase their games and compete for the Indie Prize. The Indie Prize is well-known for giving budding developers the jump-start they need to break into the iGaming industry.
Casual Connect International
Casual Connect USA is part of the larger Casual Connect enterprise, which hosts multiple yearly iGaming conferences around the world. Casual Connect Asia was a notable success this past May, while Casual Connect Tel Aviv is scheduled to take place in November. Every year, the Casual Connect conferences attract thousands of attendees and feature hundreds of lectures from international iGaming experts.
