GamesBeat is known for having the most intimate gaming events in the industry, & now we’re expanding with more summits focused on different key gaming industry topics.
Some of our future events include GamesBeat Next, GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2, and GamesBeat Summit 2022.
Dean Takahashi and the GamesBeat team return to the digital stage for GamesBeat Summit 2021, hosted as a physical and online event this April 26-28, 2022. Bringing together industry leaders for the 14th annual executive summit, the GamesBeat team aims to support content surrounding inclusion, mental health, next-gen updates, and major industry changes throughout all of gaming.
Attendees can expect a physical and digital experience focused on connections, content, and community. We will also hold our usual Women in Gaming breakfast, our speaker lunch, and our annual Visionary Awards as well.
Waves of hype always crash into the game industry, but we never know if they’re going to get our feet wet or be tidal waves that change the whole industry. GamesBeat Summit Next will examine the next big opportunities in a disciplined way with the industry’s thought leaders.
We will focus on the emerging parts of gaming that could turn into the next big market. Our major subthemes will focus on key areas and how they will grow in the post-pandemic world. Those subthemes include esports, user-generated content and the creator economy, influencers and the upheavals in marketing, nonfungible tokens and cryptocurrency, emerging markets, and the changing infrastructure of games. And as always, we will look at dealmaking and the financial trends in gaming.
From major ad ecosystem changes to the imminent arrival of the metaverse, the gaming world is flush with change that industry folk need to pay attention to. That’s why GamesBeat, VentureBeat’s dedicated gaming channel, is excited to return again to bring our second annual metaverse event to life.
Hosted digitally in January 2023, the event will bring leaders in the industry together to dig deep into the most essential topics facing developers and publishers now, including advertising and privacy changes, next-gen consoles, influencers, the rise of ad-games, the growth of triple-A mobile, and more.
