The new virtual format will be available for free all over the world
With this solution, the International Games and Interactive Entertainment Conference, keeps its annual appointment and reasserts its support for the video games and digital entertainment sector
30 April 2020 – The team at Gamelab Barcelona 2020 Live has confirmed that the 16th edition will be held online from 22 to 25 June. With a brand-new name, the conference is shifting to a digital format to reflect the current global situation and allow access to participants from all over the world. The new format, which is perfectly suited to the digital entertainment industry, allows the organisers to maintain their dedication and support for the sector.
The International Games and Interactive Entertainment Conference, which has been held in Barcelona since 2011, will offer a packed programme of online presentations, seminars, workshops, master classes and discussions featuring world-renowned speakers, just as it has done in previous years. Year after year, Gamelab has brought together some of the most influential creators in the sector, including: Shigeru Miyamoto (Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda), Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear, Snatcher), Shuhei Yoshida (President of Sony Worldwide Studios), Jade Raymond (Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell), Toru Iwatani (Pac-Man), Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil), Amy Henning (Uncharted), Jordan Mechner (Prince of Persia), Cliff Bleszinski (Unreal, Gears of War), Mike Sepso (world-leading esports entrepreneur, Senior Vice President of Activision Blizzard at Media Networks), Peter Moore (head of esports at Electronic Arts), Ian Livingstone (Tomb Raider, co-founder of Games Workshop), and many more.
This world-leading event will welcome an audience of enthusiasts, students, and, above all, professionals. To cater to their needs, Gamelab has put together a series of additional services that focus more on the development of the industry and creative topics.
Participants can register for the conference at www.gamelab.es. The main presentations will be free to view, while more specialised services and networking events will be discounted by more than 80% as a gesture of solidarity to make this section accessible to everyone in the sector.
The organisers adopted the decision to adapt the format by consensus after evaluating the development of the pandemic and the public health guidelines released. The aim is to show support for the industry and the digital entertainment enthusiasts who have endorsed the event throughout its history, before returning to Barcelona stronger than ever in the next edition.
Gamelab has become one of the most prestigious video games and digital entertainment events in the world. The conference is a gathering place for creators, executives, investors and journalists from all over the globe, where they can reflect on and discuss market trends. It also provides opportunities to generate business, present projects and predict the experiences and formats that will dominate the sector in the future.
Gamelab Barcelona 2020 LIVE is supported by the Generalitat of Catalonia via the Institute of Cultural Enterprises (ICEC), the Ministry for Digital Policy and Public Administration, the Agency for Business Competitiveness (Acció), the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, Hospitalet Municipal Council, Barcelona City Council and Barcelona Provincial Council.
