This is a landmark week for Boku, in terms of speaking engagements – we have four different speaking engagements, in various locales around the country! The first one is local and takes place today (Monday) 9/20; Margaret Mackenzie, our fearless COO, is speaking at a BayPay Forum event. The Bay Pay Forums is a group of professionals in the Bay Area focused on payments. The event is focused on Hiring for The Payment Industry – Tips & Trends. After that, on Tuesday 9/21 Ron Hirson (our SVP of Marketing & BD) is jetting off to New York for the NY Games Conference, hosted by Digital Media Wire. As you might surmise, the NYGC is a gaming focused conference. The panel Ron’s joining is discussing new trends in games and social networks for mobile platforms.
On Wednesday, Ron is back in CA for the Engage! Virtual Goods Conference in Santa Clara, CA. He’s joining a panel called: “Offers, Ads & Alternative Payments, Finding the Right Mix.” And lastly, on Friday 9/24, Ron is joining a panel discussion at the Smartphone Gaming Summit, an event hosted by Media Bistro, and taking place right in our backyard at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco. That panel is called: “Monetizing Smartphone Games.” It’s about, well, how to monetize smartphone games. =)
We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to speak in so many locations and for so many different events. Mobile payments represent not just a tremendous business opportunity, but also an amazing new stride in payments technology. Boku is making the online shopping and purchasing experience available to new, different and often underserved demographics, as well as making it simpler and more enjoyable for millions of people. That’s something to feel good about, and we’re glad to share that vision of the future with as many people as possible.
Here’s a list of the events in calendar order – come by and check out the panels, or grab us in the reception hall for a chat or a cup of coffee. It’d be nice to meet you.
