New GSummit Speakers and Video Announced, Early Bird Deadline Approaches


I’m super stoked to announce a new slate of additional speakers for GSummit (June 19-21 in SF). The event just keeps getting more exciting, and I’m sure you won’t want to miss the hands on workshops and 40+ sessions. Also, the early bird deadline is fast approaching next Friday; if you want to save $300 and guarantee your space (especially in the workshops) you should register now.

You can watch a quick trailer for GSummit now and scroll down to see the list of new speakers.

At GSummit, Porter will share OMGPOP’s secrets on how to build lasting, gamified community engagement around well-crafted social game experiences.
