Best of the Decade Audio Roundtable
Page 1 of 2

On December 30, 2010 we held an audio roundtable with four industry insiders for a unique discussion.  We looked back at the last 10 years in 5 categories and shared our picks for the Best of the Decade in each category.  The panel included Scott Carter, Pat Walker, Benjamin Hill and Jon Cudo.

Each panelist made their case why their winner was the most impactful and how it shaped the business of game operations and entertainment.

We have posted the audio in 5 segments, each covering one category. 

  1. Best Game Promotion
  2. Best Entertainment Group
  3. Best Contest or On-Field Promotion
  4. Best Mascot
  5. Best Team Operations

The review includes helpful insight, anecdotes, and tips on how to take your game entertainment elements from very good to the Best. We also have several links below related to the discussion and the panelists.
