2:00PM Eastern/1:00PM Central/11:00AM Pacific 

What do the Economy and Black Friday Weekend Sales Say About Potential Video Game Company Results for 2020 and 2021?

With 2020 winding to a close, eyes are on the outlook for video games companies. The industry is caught between two competing trends. COVID-19 and related guidelines to limit spread have increased demand for video games and games competitions. At the same time, the ongoing pandemic-induced recession means that many consumers have less disposable income. Additionally, the industry is seeing long-awaited launches of next-generation consoles along with releases of new titles. MFM has assembled a group of expert speakers who will delve into these and other questions posed by video games finance professionals. [PRESENTATION]
