The Promise of Gamification

What is gamification and how can it help your business? Is now the time to look at gamification as a business tool? Does it really represent a whole new direction for achieving the goals you have set for your company? How can gamification help a small business compete with large brands? How can you start using gamification to introduce game design elements into non-game applications and make them more fun and engaging — and profitable — for your business?

On September 12th, join us at Mind & Media — on the 4th Floor Atrium of 1101 King Street in Alexandria — from 6:15 until 9:00 p.m. for a dynamic, hands-on, integrative panel and learn the latest in-depth information on what gamification really is and how it might be a good option for you to explore for projects with current and new clients.
