Enthusiast Gaming to Lead AWNewYork Panel on the Creator Economy, Metaverse and Web3

The panel, Gaming’s Creator Economy: Marketers’ Gateway to the Metaverse and Web 3.0, will be led by Enthusiast Gaming's Chief Revenue Officer, Bill Drolet

Enthusiast Gaming Holdings Inc. (“Enthusiast Gaming”), (NASDAQ:EGLX; TSX:EGLX), will moderate a panel discussion at Advertising Week New York on Thursday, October 20, 2022, Gaming’s Creator Economy: Marketers’ Gateway to the Metaverse and Web 3.0, led by Chief Revenue Officer, Bill Drolet.

With gaming at the epicenter of the new creator economy, Enthusiast Gaming, an integrated gaming entertainment company, is ideal to lead the discussion on how brands and content creators are making an impact through gaming. To date, Enthusiast Gaming developed content creator activation strategies for leading brands such as State Farm Insurance, Lego, Universal Pictures, Adidas, and most recently, the NFL, to connect with Generation Z and Millennial consumers. As creator partnerships in gaming pave the way for exciting brand opportunities and collaborations, advertisers continue to embrace new ways to engage with those previously hard-to-reach audiences.

The panel discussion will feature thoughts and expert opinions from guests Mae Wen, Amazon Acceleration Manager at The Vita Coco Company; Tommy Huthansel, VP, Director Partnerships at dentsu Gaming; and Creator and CEO of JeromeASF LLC, Jerome Aceti.

“The opportunities within the gaming industry are fun, engaging, and endless,” said Aceti. “Brands have such a unique opportunity to be a part of the creator economy, and the gaming ecosystem is really opening the door. Advertisers just have to walk through and find the opportunities that work best for their brand and embrace this new era of interaction.”

As brands look ahead to the Metaverse and Web3, they’re learning what it takes to activate successful partnerships that integrate traditional and emerging communication channels.

“This is truly an exciting time for the industry,” commented panel moderator, Bill Drolet. “Gaming is mainstream; there are new and sophisticated ways of expanding brand awareness, and a channel that captures attention and reaches almost everyone. Brands that choose to embrace these new strategies will continue to outperform their competitors.” 

The panel session is a part of AWNewYork’s 4-day event happening October 17-20 at New York’s Market Line, which features a lineup of more than 500 speakers across more than 25 themed tracks. The event will bring together some of the brightest minds in marketing, technology, and culture, and sessions can be attended in person or online. Learn more and reserve a seat to attend.
