Virtual Roundtable/Webinar via Zoom [Download Brochure]
Wednesday, February 17
2:00PM Eastern/1:00PM Central/11:00AM Pacific  

Speakers:  Kevin Depew, Deputy Chief Economist, RSM UP LLP; Joost van Dreunen, Author of One Up: Creativity, Competition, and the Global Business of Video Games

Moderator: Jenna Hardy, Interim CFO, The Gearbox Entertainment Company, Inc.

Overview: When 2020 ended, the video games industry was facing two competing trends. Stay-at-home orders and other policies intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 increased demand for games content. At the same time, historic unemployment and underemployment negatively affected disposable income for some consumer groups.

Experts from our December 8th Outlook will open with updates to their predictions. Then, join the conversation as participants discuss questions including the pandemic’s impact on the business of producing and selling video games, insights from recent M&A and stock market activity, and strategies for adding/innovating in areas including talent, IP, and technology (internally generated or acquired).

Participants registered for the seminar will be eligible to receive up to one [1] CPE credit toward their Certified Public Accounting (CPA) or other qualified license. MFM is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.

This one-hour virtual event is free to all participants. Registration is required
