Sep 15 - 16, 2014
Parc 55 Wyndham, San Francisco, CA

GamesBeat 2014 is VentureBeat’s sixth annual event on disruption in the video game market. The event gathers top execs, investors, analysts, and entrepreneurs from the hottest companies to explore the gaming industry’s latest trends and newest monetization opportunities.

This year’s theme is “Total World Domination.” Gaming is competing on the world stage to become the dominant medium for entertainment. Will it succeed? And will the game business be dominated by blockbusters across all platforms — consoles, PCs, mobile, and online — or will diversity thrive as indies stay strong?

We’ll explore these ideas and more at our must-attend, very efficient two-day event with the movers and shakers of gaming.
