I am just back from representing +Play as part of the Auckland delegation to the 2015 Tripartite Economic Alliance Summit between Auckland, Los Angeles and Guangzhou.
I formed some great relationships through the massive networking opportunities afforded by the Summit, both in Los Angeles and on our home turf of Auckland. We are looking forward to great things coming from the synergies that we have found there. There were many highlights in my two weeks in Los Angeles but perhaps the stand-outs were my talks with ace marketer Steven Seto, who has held senior roles at Starbucks and HTC among others, Richard Davis and Steve Huff at touchscreen entertainment network Scopely, and the opportunity to present some core elements of +Play’s approach to gamification to a meeting of gamification professionals in Santa Monica.
So much of lasting value was gained from this visit to one of the most rapidly developing technology innovation centers in the world – especially getting confirmation that the quality and depth of +Play’s thinking and originality can impress even in that illustrious context. I can’t wait to return!
