VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Versus Systems, Inc. (CSE:VS) (OTCQB:VRSSF) (FRANKFURT:BMVA) today announced a speaking engagement for the company's founder and CEO Matthew Pierce at LD Micro’s Main Event.

LD Micro’s Main Event is hosting its 10th Annual conference in Los Angeles at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA December 5th through the 7th 2017. The fastest-growing media segment is competitive gaming and eSports, a market opportunity Pierce and the Versus team seek to expand on behalf of all game developers, publishers, brands and gamers. The 10th annual Main Event brings together experts from microcap companies.

Pierce will be discussing how brands can work with over one billion players worldwide in the Reaching the Global Gaming Audience panel. “Modern gamers’ media consumption typically stops when they put down their favorite device,” said Matthew Pierce, CEO of Versus Systems. “The Versus Systems platform has the potential to connect with gamers on an emotional level inside their favorite games, inspiring them to get back in-game at a higher frequency. We’re going to increase engagement and growth for our game developers and increase brand loyalty for our prizing partners. We are here to make the gaming experience even more fun than it already is.” LD Micro’s Main Event will feature presentations from the CEOs of over 250 micro cap companies in attendance, including Data I/O Corporation, Myomo, Inc., Adesto Technologies Corp., SG Blocks, Inc., The Street, Inc. and more. (Conference speaking date: 12/6/17)

Pierce has spent his career working on the convergence of technology and entertainment including his work at the Boston Consulting Group and at Warner Bros., in addition to co-founding Rosum Corporation, which later sold to TruePosition, and founding O-Labs, an LA-based technology incubator that was a joint venture of Originate, Inc., Manatt Phelps & Phillips, and ICM Partners.
