WN Conference is coming to the US for the first time. WN Seattle’21 will take place on November 16-17 in Seattle, Washington. It’s paired with the online event WN North America Online’21, which will run November 15-19. Here’s a brief overview of the events and what to expect from them.
The on-site event is focused on the US video games market. The WN team is confident that WN Seattle’21 will let the US-based industry professionals safely meet in person, exchange news and experience, as well as renew existing partnerships.
As usual, the US edition will feature talks, an expo zone, and an informal networking event:
- There’s a single track of talks planned for WN Seattle’21. Among the speakers are the representatives of the gaming companies (Pocket Games), investment firms (CVCapital), production firms (Amber), press (VentureBeat), and NFT-related businesses (OP Games). There are about 30 talks prepared for two days;
- The expo zone is ready for 500 on-site visitors, who will be able to access booths, lounge zones, meeting points, conference rooms, and developer showcase;
- For the informal part, there’s a networking party planned for the inaugural night of the conference.
The online business conference is dedicated to the video games industry of North America. Local teams, services, and games are in the spotlight here. The event will attempt to break down the rules of how the North American video games market works.
The participants can visit the virtual expo zone, chat or schedule an online meeting, and, of course, attend the lectures by industry experts.
The program for WN North America Online’21 has 35 talks during its three online days (November 15, 18, and 19). Among the speakers, there are representatives of analytics company Niko Partners, monetization platform AdColony, art services and game development company GameVision, game studio Miniclip, and others.
