Level Up KL is attempting something new this month with the LEVEL UP SPACEBAR and LEVEL UP PLAY-ONE online events. The organizers have revealed some of the guest speakers who will be gracing the business-focused Level Up Spacebar event, and it’s actually a returning VIP guest from last year’s event.
Former Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) Worldwide Studios president and current SIE Head Of Indies Initiative Shuhei Yoshida will be one of two guest speakers (alongside SIE Global Account Director John Eternal) for the Global Self-Publishing For PlayStation segment of the event.
Last year, Yoshida also attended Level Up KL 2019 to officiate the announcement of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (SIE WWS Malaysia). It’s great to see the great man at this year’s event again as an esteemed guest.
