Social Gambling & Gaming Summit Kicks Off in LA Today

Gambling911.com is here in beautiful Marina Del Rey, California to take part in this week’s Social Gambling & Gaming Summit that kicks off this morning (Thursday December 13) with keynote speaker Niranjan Nagar, Head of Games and Apps for Facebook.

The Social Gaming & Gambling Summit is a conference focused on the intersection of mobile gaming, immersive worlds, real-life brands and social networking.

Given that social games raised a record $807 million in funding last year, it's no surprise that game developers are scrambling to devote more energy than ever to building compelling social interaction & engagement into every game they create.

This event unites established industry leaders with emerging start-ups in free-to-play games, real money, and credit based social gaming. Attendees will indulge in two full days of illuminating keynotes, lively panels, and engaging discussion on the convergence of gaming and the social web.

Thursday evening will be the networking reception, which is a free event.
