Last month, WINBC joined forces with New Media BC to bring you an evening focused on WEB 2.0 and MOBILE GAMING and ENTERTAINMENT. It was an oversold evening and as we evidently hit on a hot topic, we are going to stay on the theme. WINBC and New Media BC together again, bringing you new content, new presenters and a look at the world of WEB 2.0 and MOBILE GAMING & ENTERTAINMENT in Vancouver.
Web 2.0 and Mobile Gaming and Entertainment
The Apple “App Store” has completely shifted the business model for mobile gaming. Suddenly you can sell your product directly to consumers, by-passing the previous market entry barriers. Now Google and Blackberry are going to get into the app store business. Vancouver is right in the middle of it all with its expertise and world class talent in gaming and digital new media giving it a competitive advantage over the rest of the world that has also wised up to this phenomenon.
We have invited some of the players in this mobile gaming and entertainment sector to tell you their stories, share their experiences and most of all, show you some cool products. This is going to be a fun night.
Boston Mobile Barcamp is coming. Join us on March 21st for Boston’s annual event for mobile developers and enthusiasts.
