We’re happy to announce that GamesBeat University will return to the GamesBeat 2016 event this summer.

The talks will focus on informational topics for game developers, publishers, and other professionals. GamesBeat University will take place during the breaks in our regular physical conference schedule, so that we can have a continuous livestream throughout the 2.5-day conference. We mean these talks to be educational in nature and to highlight those who wouldn’t ordinarily get the chance to speak in front of a large audience.
Our emcee of the event for the second year in a row will be Gordon Bellamy, visiting scholar at the University of Southern California and a game industry veteran.
Here’s some more information about the conference. The agenda is here. Our latest speaker post is here.
Our theme is “The platform awakens: A new hope for the game industry.” 

This is our first GamesBeat event that is heading south to Los Angeles. And it’s going to have a new one-day preamble, our AR/VR day, to focus on the excitement of augmented reality and virtual reality games and entertainment. This leads into our traditional GamesBeat fare.Our ninth annual GamesBeat event takes place at the Terranea Resort on August 1 to August 3 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The resort is on the beautiful Pacific Ocean and offers some awesome amenities, like a spa and golf.

You can register for the event here.

GamesBeat 2016 brings together top execs, investors, analysts, and entrepreneurs from the hottest companies to explore the gaming industry’s latest trends, growth opportunities, technical directions, and newest monetization opportunities.
Who should attend?

This event is specifically designed for gaming executives, investors, developers, and entrepreneurs. Here’s our link to stories from last year’s event. 2015 was all about the Game of Thrones, or the battle among game companies for supremacy. At our recent GamesBeat Summit, we focused on the underdogs of gaming. This summer, we have a bit of a fixation on Star Wars. Our theme is a nod to that and to the fact that gaming has a lot of new platforms arising.
Mobile has become ascendant as the largest game platform, with more than a billion users. But new platforms are coming in the console market (hi, Nintendo) as well as virtual reality and augmented reality. The mobile, console, and PC platforms will see new innovations in game technology this year, and we’ll be talking about all of them.
Our advisory board for this event includes: 

Michael Chang, senior vice president of corporate development at NCSoft West
Greg Essig, head of business development at Mobcrush
Megan Gaiser, senior creative leader and strategist; principal at Contagious Creativity
Perrin Kaplan, principal at Zebra Partners
Ophir Lupu, head of games at United Talent Agency
Wanda Meloni, executive director at the Open Gaming Alliance
Ali Moiz, CEO at Vulcun
Maarten Noyons, CEO of the International Mobile Gaming Awards
Ian Sharpe, CEO of Azubu
