Welcome to the future
Exploring the frontiers where games meet music, film, sports, social media, culture, influencers, fashion, technology, lifestyle and loads more...
Beyond Games: Monday 10 May 2021 - Friday 14 May 2021
The future of media, games and technology has never been more exciting.
As the lines blur between online experiences, social networking, games, and traditional entertainment formats, we’re aiming to help connect the dots and plot a vision of the future with a new two-day conference discussing the emerging opportunities in the digital entertainment sector.
How will Hollywood utilise game-making tools and techniques? Why is Netflix hiring games executives? What is Sony Music working on with Unreal? Are TikTok and YouTube stars the future of media? When will VR and AR take over? Are we about to enter the metaverse?
Beyond Games is a new initiative from the makers of Pocket Gamer, PG Connects, PC Games Insider, Influencer Update and Blockchain Gamer that’s designed to answer these questions and more. It will combine editorial content across multiple media together with focused events focused on the exciting future of the games industry and the potential that’s unlocked when the energy, technology and knowhow of games connects with other entertainment and business spheres.
The first Beyond Games event will be an online conference that you can attend from your home office. Taking place across two days this May, you can expect multiple tracks of talks, panels and round-tables and insights from 50+ experienced speakers representing multiple leading companies and disciplines and looking to explore the possibilities of tomorrow’s games – and beyond.
Visit the cutting edge
Discover the possible futures of the games industry... transmedia topics, the metaverse, convergence, technology and the ongoing intersection of games with film, music and other media.
As one of an expected 500 attendees, you will select from a programme of great live video content, full of insight and practical advice across four themed conference tracks. You can watch the tracks live or catch up on the recorded videos within your own time, and if you're online while the speakers are performing you'll be able to interact with them and the other viewers with questions and comments.
You can expect talks from over 50 speakers who will educate and inspire through an agenda set to cover technology, films, TV, games, social media, fashion, music and more.
There will be guided round-tables to explore specific topics (for instance, where games meet the movies), in addition to an organised match-making platform where you can communicate with other attendees.
Hosted by the experts
You can expect an informative and entertaining couple of days, in the company of the world's best speakers, organised by the experts in b2b gaming conferences.
