Event Preview: GamesBeat Summit 2019

Posted Apr 19, 2019

Join leaders in the gaming industry for GamesBeat Summit 2019 in Los Angeles! The summit will be held on April 23rd and 24th with attendance by game developers and publishers, as well as industry CEOs, executives, marketers, and VCs. VentureBeat’s flagship industry event is limited to only 350 attendees (including our EVP of Publishing, David Pokress!), allowing for a more intimate experience with genuine conversations and networking opportunities.

The theme for this year’s summit is “Building Gaming Communities.” Fostering strong, active communities can be the key to success when games are dependant on loyal fans and strong word-of-mouth. Throughout the event, speakers will delve into communities for virtual reality, augmented reality, esports, and high-end games.

GamesBeat Summit’s agenda will include speakers from our friends at Jam City, Warner Bros. Interactive, IGN, and many more. Here’s what we’re looking forward to most:
