Gamification is a hot topic, with big brands, startups and non-profits trying to leverage the power of points, badges, levels, challenges and rewards to engage users, generate virality and solve problems. Many of the leaders in this movement will come together on September 15 & 16 in New York City at the Gamification Summit. Now you can join Gabe Zichermann, GSummit Chair and author of Gamification by Design and Game-Based Marketing as he discusses some of the main ways that gamification will change your business. He shares examples of gamification done right - and done poorly, and key patterns that have been used successfully to create engagement. He'll also give you a preview of some of the amazing content that will be shared at Gamification Summit NYC.
