This event - and all events we host, are more than conferences, they are dedicated forums for advisors of high net worth clients in the entertainment, music, and pro sportsindustries."

Hoffman continues: "Gaming X LA attendees will walk away with high powered connections, and a know-how of the unique challenges and opportunities in gaming: from a licensing, investment, fan engagement, and deal making perspective.

In another statement, Zach Sekar, co-founder of NFT LA, expressed enthusiasm over how Gaming X LA is bringing together such a wide range of influential thinkers and personalities.

"The sheer amount of talented, innovative people from a broad cross-section of industries coming to Gaming X LA is a testament to the hunger for tapping into the power of digital technologies, especially for how they pertain to the massive industry that is gaming," Sekar said. "NFT LA is at the forefront of melding Web3 with entertainment, and so it makes sense that we would be partnering with Trusted Advisor for showcasing at Gaming X LA the disruptive innovation happening at the nexus of gaming and entertainment."

Sekar added: "It's exciting to see such forward-thinking speakers at this event, including Baron Davis, who also spoke at this year's NFT LA gathering and who will be making a return speaking appearance at next year's event. LA is the global hub for all things digital innovation and entertainment, and so this is the right place, held at the right time, for such an exciting gathering like Gaming X LA."
