After an extremely successful conference last year, Disco:MTL is back for round two (FIGHT!), remaining the only summit in North America dedicated exclusively to discoverability and marketing for video games. In this day and age, having a good game is only half of the battle. Without an exceptional strategy for discovery, your game can be lost among the thousands of other games just released.
We don’t want that to happen, which is why Disco:MTL is bringing you action packed talks and workshops that will reinvigorate your marketing strategy, teach you how to develop community and content creator relationships, and help your video game stand out from the crowd. Curious? Check out last year's summit.
10am - 5pm As a new addition, the day before the Summit, we will be holding workshops during the day. More information will be coming soon, however each full purchased pass will have one potential seat in a workshop, that can be transfered or used by anyone in their studio. Please note, workshop seats will be very limited, so this will be on a first come, first serve basis.
