GamesBeat 2015: A Game of Thrones

What is GamesBeat?

Now in its seventh year, GamesBeat is bringing together over 500 top execs, investors, analysts, and entrepreneurs from the hottest companies to explore the gaming industry’s latest trends, growth opportunities, technical directions, and newest monetization opportunities. We’ll focus on the international explosion of gaming and what it takes to create a sustainable business by reaching and retaining your game’s users.

What will I learn?

This year’s theme is “Game of Thrones.” Gaming has many kingdoms: mobile, console, PC online, geographic, and more. In each of these powerful realms, companies are fighting to grow fast, to come out on top — and to cross boundaries to rule more than one empire.

Playing the competitive game, making alliances, prepping for new platforms like augmented and virtual reality, and surviving the incredibly fast change in gaming right now is more difficult than ever before. It’s more complex than the fantasy world of Westeros in HBO’s Game of Thrones … and it’s happening right in front of us all.

At GamesBeat 2015, we’ll dissect how these kings and queens are battling for gaming supremacy and growth. We’ll find out who’s leading and how they are winning.

Exclusive offer: Every GamesBeat attendee will receive a free copy of VB’s latest research report on mobile user acquisition — a $499 value.
