What is Gamification? - Wanda Meloni - M2 reseach


Published on

Gamification is on everyone’s lips these days. Using game-like mechanics and systems to increase fun and engagement is a relatively new and expansive topic, subject to much debate and dialogue. Without a doubt: If "engagement" is the super metric of the next decade, then "gamification" is its elixir. What do we mean by gamification, featuring Wanda Meloni.

To mark this first-ever conference on an emerging field that will touch just about every business and social sector, we are pleased to exclusively unveil the first-ever research around codifying the size and growth potential for gamified goods, services and brands. Audience members will hear Wanda Meloni, M2 Research, describe for the first time the important findings of this one-of-a-kind months-long ressearch.
