8 Reasons why you should visit Up the Game 2019

After last year's excitement at #UTG2018 we are happy to recommend this awesome event to you. Why? Here are 8 reasons why you should definitely visit Up the Game 2019:

1 - Inspiration in the spotlight

Many international speakers will hit the stage, for example: Cyril Voiron, Alexandr Girshfeld and Nick Moran. They offer you the newest insights, trends and best practises of last year. If not for the international speakers, you should attend the inspiration pitches! Short presentations about new ideas coming your way!

2 - Feel, scent, taste, see, hear

You don't want to just sit back and relax, do you? Get up, get moving and experience new tools, games, VR and other innovations yourself!

3 - Networking like a boss

We're crossing borders here! Did you know that people from all over the world attend UP the Game 2019? Which means a diverse network for you, giving you new and different perspectives on your current business.

4 - Once upon a storytelling-time

Tell the story but most importantly, tell your story! People connect with people. More than ever storytelling is becoming more relevant to create your unique service. Johanna Koljonen will talk about how to keep visitors active players in the experience through effective storytelling
