David Kim: As the CEO, I oversee the strategic direction, operations, and overall management of the agency.

What are your thoughts on the way the industry has grown in the last 12 months?

Branding has become more and more important for mobile publishers. Mobile games, like their PC and console brethren, for a while now have graduated from being merely games to important entertainment experiences that are deeply engaging and beloved.

Due to the competitiveness of performance marketing and the need to differentiate, it has been interesting to see mobile marketers branch out into other forms of media and promotion like out-of-home, television and social media.

Which part of Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki are you most looking forward to and why?

The lectures. It's always fascinating to hear from people across every sector in the industry.

In just one week, the whole mobile gaming industry is set to descend on Helsinki for Pocket Gamer Connects. The event, which runs from September 11th to 12th, is packed full of talks, tracks, networking opportunities, and more. You can read about the full conference schedule here.
