Howdy! Gamesforum London 2022
Gamesforum never feels like an event but a community meet-up…. And Team AdInMo was definitely in a ‘howdy, partner’ mood! Here’s our round-up from London.
The London edition of Gamesforum earlier this month was as fantastic as ever. With the Unity / Ironsource / App Lovin debacle as the backdrop, the mood was reflective on the economic and macro trends affecting ad monetization today, notably:
- Speed of market consolidation
- Drop in hyper-casual traditional ad monetization
- IAP Growth predicted to slow
- Google Play Store Changes
We asked attendees their views on in-game advertising and the future of ad monetization. Watch our round-up from the showfloor.
