Welcome to the future!
Beyond Games is your new conference about the future of games, digital entertainment and the creative industries, from the makers of BeyondGames.biz
Exploring the frontiers where games meet music, film, sports, social media, culture, influencers, fashion, technology, lifestyle and loads more...

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, this online event will help connect the dots and plot a vision of the future.

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? Find out at a new two-day conference discussing the emerging opportunities in the digital entertainment sector.

Beyond Games is an initiative from the makers of Pocket Gamer, PG Connects, PC Games Insider and Blockchain Gamer that’s designed to explore all these themes. It's part of a new initiative to bring together people working on the frontier of digital entertainment and culture, an initiative that includes a dedicated editorial site too, in the form of BeyondGames.biz.

This is the second Beyond Games event, and will be an entirely-online conference that you can attend from your home office. Taking place across a couple of days this November, you can expect multiple tracks of talks, panels and insights from 50+ experienced speakers representing multiple leading companies and disciplines.

Visit the cutting edge
Discover the metaverse, convergence, technology and the ongoing intersection of games with film, music and other media

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. Tracks include:

Mapping The Metaverse
State Of Play
Transmedia Trends
Tech 3.0
Movers & Shakers
Future Visions
You will also have access to an exclusive match-making platform where you can communicate with other attendees, and search for people working in sectors you care about. We will use MeetToMatch for this, which benefits from being part of our other conference series Pocket Gamer Connects too.

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.
