Connecting the global mobile games industry in Seattle
Steel Media COO Dave Bradley is looking forward to being back on the US West Coast in just a few short weeks: “It’s going to be wonderful to be back meeting people, networking, doing business, and making new connections. That’s why it’s called Connects! Seattle is a buzzing scene – the home of so much innovation and creativity, so we can’t wait to return in person, after a couple of years of only seeing friends and colleagues on Zoom.”
He continues: “Across three stages at the Grand Hyatt, our international experts will be sharing insights on everything from the basics of finding the right monetization method for your game to succeeding in the metaverse. Talks are short and sharp so there’s always something new to discover. It’s going to be a really intense, productive couple of days downtown.”
