This year, we’ll have a GMA Symposium, which is a mini-summit including popular sessions like an inspiring keynote address and the favorite Pecha Kucha session. The Symposium leads into a cocktail event and an enhanced GMA Awards show.
The GMA Symposium & Awards will be a must-attend evening gala! As always, we’ll have a multitude of networking opportunities while celebrating the best in games marketing. Plus, we’ll have high quality Symposium content including the fan favorite Pecha Kucha session, a ground-breaking keynote speaker and high caliber awards show entertainment. Additionally, your GMA Symposium & Awards show ticket in 2016 will also grant you 1-year membership access to new GMA initiatives including mentorship programs, professional development initiatives, and various networking salons surrounding industry events.
We’re still working on the rebranding efforts and want to discuss Game Marketing Association partner goals before finalizing the strategy for 2017. We’ll be in touch soon with more details.
Game Marketing Association allows us to have a unified brand for both Game Marketing Summit & Game Marketing Awards. It also aligns with our vision of having deeper marketing community engagement throughout the year as opposed to a singular summit.
PromaxBDA offers expertise in our rapidly evolving industry, and across the wider field of entertainment marketing. Not only do they have a proven track record in producing amazing shows, we’re excited to have a partner that’s passionate about relaunching GMS as an organization that strives for community. With a shared vision of inspiring creativity, driving innovation and professional growth while honoring excellence, PromaxBDA is a natural fit for the relaunch of Game Marketing Association.
Yes, the Board of Directors spoke with a number of potential event partners before finalizing an agreement with PromaxBDA.
We decided not to produce a full Game Marketing Summit this year, as we’d prefer to have a deeper understanding of our member goals before relaunching the show. Additionally, in order to truly revamp the experience, we wanted more time to truly innovate and execute successfully.
Our goal is to build a deeper relationship across our game marketing community, with an organization that engages our members throughout the year at key touchpoints, as opposed to having just one annual conference.
We’re looking forward to launching various initiatives tailored to the games industry, including mentorship and professional development programs. We’re also planning to produce various networking salons surrounding industry events. We’ll be in touch soon as we develop specific details around these initiatives.
In the past the ticket price included an all-day Game Marketing Summit and the evening Awards show. After much consideration, we have priced the 2016 tickets at a lower rate due to the compressed content, while still allowing for high event production value.
We will try and work out deals for those committing to larger groups of attendees.
We will have a variety of available sponsorship opportunities surrounding the GMA Symposium & Awards. We’ll be in touch soon with details on available sponsorship opportunities.
