Event description



NY Games Conference (Oct. 4) is part of NYME with over 4,000 attendees participating over two days.

NY Games Conference is a 1-day event that is part of New York Media Festival’s (NYME) 2-day event series. The 1-day conference is the leading event for senior representatives from game publishers, developers, movie studios, advertising firms, VCs, social networks, technology providers, analysts and press. Unlike some other industry events, NY Games Conference focuses on bringing together the people who really matter to meet in a lively yet intimate environment that allows access and privacy to build and grow relationships and partnerships. Year after year, attendees tell me about the importance of NYGC for the ROI it provides. It’s not just the deals they make but people they meet and the long lasting relationships forged. If you are serious about the business of games and interactive entertainment, we invite you to join us at NY Games Conference.
