GamesBeat 2015 continues in its seventh year, and like the GamesBeat Summit, will focus on the international explosion of gaming, and what it takes to create a sustainable business by reaching and retaining game users that are increasingly mobile.

The big difference is that GamesBeat 2015 will feature a much broader audience, and allow for a wider consideration of topics around the theme of gaming growth.

Mega hits like Candy Crush, Angry Birds, and Assassins’ Creed have sparked a paradigm shift in the gaming industry. The trick is to figure out how these hits can be repeated, and part of that has to do with nurturing loyal gamers over time. There is also the rise of new platforms that allow brands to touch every major city and continent.

GamesBeat 2015 is your opportunity to join the important conversations around things like in-game marketing and how to use analytics and other data to get ahead.

We’ve gathered top game publishers, brands, agencies, VCs, and other influencers together in an accessible format that will articulate the gaming industry’s roadmap for 2015 and beyond.
