120+ expert speakers

We’ve lined up an exciting roster of speakers around the world and across multiple sectors for Beyond Games, including…

Networking and in-depth discussions

Each attendee has 24-hour access to the MeetToMatch platform that we’ve adopted for our first Beyond Games event, as well as our Discord server, which enables the opportunity to chat, network and connect with other professionals, speakers and sponsors.

One of our missions at Beyond Games is to bring together professionals from different verticals, for knowledge sharing and inspiring ideas. To conduct this mission, we’re rolling out three Guided Breakout Groups, which are like interactive panels that take the form of meetings where you’ll have your chance to exchange ideas with the experts. These Guided Breakout Groups are:

  • Monday 10 May: Where Games Meet the Metaverse
  • Tuesday 11 May: Where Games Meet Music & Live Performance
  • Wednesday 12 May: Where Games Meet Film and TV

These sessions are free to all Beyond Games attendees - to take part in the Guided Breakout Groups, register your interest here.
