Gaming is big business. Today there are 3 billion gamers worldwide, generating $175B in annual revenue, more than the music & film industries combined. With new innovations like massive multiplayer environments, virtual concerts, and the Metaverse, it’s never been a more dynamic time to talk about the future of this industry.

The explosion in gaming has led innovative artists like Snoop Dogg, DJ Tiesto, Ariana Grande, Travis Scott and more to enter the space.

At the inaugural Gaming X LA Summit we will dive into opportunities for top film and music acts to expand their audience and generate revenue in the gaming space. The event is co-hosted by Trusted Advisor and NFT LA with special presentations from Mathieu Nouzareth, CEO of The Sandbox and Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, CEO of Splinterlands!

This Summit will cover:

– Licensing
– Name, image, likeness
– Expanding fan base
– Creating legal agreements
– Taking equity

The Next Generation of Talent: An Introduction to Streamers, Content Creators, and Esports Players

The next generation of talent looks vastly different than what most are accustomed to. This panel will provide an introductory discussion regarding the nuances of streamers, content creators, and esports players. We’ll dive into the differences of each talent group, discuss the various ways they generate revenue, and share some of the pain points our panelists have seen talent in this industry face. Attendees can expect to walk away from the discussion with a greater overall understanding of this industry, while also learning of ways traditional entertainment clients have already immersed themselves into this quickly evolving space.
