We are thrilled to have hosted Gaming X LA earlier this month on November 14th, at the beautiful Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica.
Innovators, investors, and entertainment advisors connected in an exclusive networking and educational environment during 6 carefully curated talks. At the inaugural Gaming X LA Summit we dove into opportunities for top film and music acts to expand their audience and generate revenue in the gaming space. Topics included the current investment climate, gaming meets web3 and the metaverse, Esports, the future of IP and more. The event is was hosted by Trusted Advisor and NFT LA with special presentations from Mathieu Nouzareth, CEO of The Sandbox US, Celine Joshua of Universal Music Group, Alex Kamins of Warner Music Group, Joanna Popper of CAA and Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, CEO of Splinterlands!
We could not have pulled this off without our partners for the event. A very big thank you to Splinterlands, Sandbox, Enjinstarter, Morgan Stanley Global Sports & Entertainment, Polker, Decentral Games, Blockchain Game Alliance and Momentous Insurance Brokerage.
