Top figures in the gaming industry assemble to explain the sector's journey from a ‘bedroom’ hobby to a boardroom priority in entertainment. The panellists share their experience in the space, lay-out the trends, and hint at future developments. Our gaming veterans will also give guidance on marketing opportunities, be it in gaming or esports, brand integration, or in-game placements. Oh, we'll be talking about games a lot too. And we mean a lot.
