Apps are fast becoming as ubiquitous as websites. Whether you are in the entertainment industry, business world or the non-profit realm, mobile applications can play a part in your success. Games have proven to be the most used and often most lucrative form of mobile applications. Games can be used to complement existing brands, as branding/marketing tools or as stand-alone revenue generators.

This panel addresses selecting the best approach for your company or organization when it comes to creating and distributing your app. It will also address the benefits of effective collaboration between players from different but complementary fields. The audience will walk away with a case study of a successful partnership between a music artist, a non-profit organization and a technology company.

The music artist wanted a mobile gaming app to extend his brand. The non-profit wanted a mobile gaming app that utilized the “gamification of education” and could be used to engage urban youth. The technology company took the input from the two and creatively designed and successfully launched a mobile gaming app that is now available on iOS and Android devices.

Together they made a mobile gaming app, made money and made a difference.
