Livestreaming is an integral and essential part of online gaming culture. Community, Marketing and PR all make use of it, whether it be in house, with volunteers or paid contractors, with more streamers and more platforms emerging every year. How do we deal with the enormous responsibility of managing content in this largely unregulated, LIVE Wild West environment? From f-bombs to bomb threats, our panelists will outline the risks, best practices and real life experiences from the company side of the equation, imparting essential best practices to put in place to protect your team, your game and your company from accidental or intentional disasters. The world IS watching.


Livestreaming is still largely unregulated. It falls to the teams within individual companies to come up with management and coping mechanisms to reduce online risks, and the role often falls to Community Managers. How can they best set themselves up to deal with loose cannons, disastrous incidents or tragedies? We'll offer solid examples, strategems and solutions to the issues that may arise.

Intended Audience

This panel is designed to inform and bolster Community Managers (as well as PR and Marketing team members) who find themselves responsible for streaming programs, and to enable them to serve as solutions-based captains for related departments and the company as a whole both to prevent serious issues and to find solutions if things do go horribly wrong.
