GamesBeat Summit  2018

Agenda

Berkeley, April 9 & 10

If you could see the future of games before it happens, you’d clearly have a huge business advantage. GamesBeat Summit 2018 will take you into the future of games before it happens – and use that same time machine to return you to the past for critical lessons that still apply and will influence where we go next.
