As we have discussed lots of times at On Serious Games, gamification and Serious Games try to change the way we think about business, education and health. It is time to forget words like “sacrifice” or “pain” and exchange them for “motivation” and “fun”.

This year’s congress will be especially focused on gamification applied to improve business processes. Be prepared to discover what is going on with Advergaming (video games for branding), game-based learning (learning by playing), growth hacking (explosive marketing technics) and newsgames (translating news into Serious Games) the next big thing in media.
