Game On! 
Reflections on the IG Summit
Luke Hohmann

Last week, we held our 3rd Innovation Games® Summit at Adobe's stunningly beautiful offices in Lehi, UT. Tami Carter did a masterful job of curating the event: The speakers were thought-provoking, inspiring, and memorable; the attendees created new connections and strengthened old ones; and Conteneo learned a great deal more about how we can better serve our customers. 


This post captures my perspective on some of the highlights of the summit. (We'll back this spring with more face-to-face events under the Playcamp banner. Stay tuned!)


Summit Highlights

There were many great moments during the week, and these are just a few. We videotaped all of the presentations and will be posting videos and copies of all slide decks shortly at When you watch the videos you can compare your reactions with my own!
