Featured Session: All About Games. Data, Trends, and What’s Next

Mar 12, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Video games are the new $200 billion obsession among tech companies, regulators, and legacy media firms. Trillion-dollar tech firms eagerly outspend each other to win favor with audiences and future-proof their businesses. Politicians look to popular titles and live streaming to connect with young voters. And executives in music and film are experimenting with new ways to build immersive experiences. In this presentation, we’ll establish key themes in gaming, review relevant market developments, and discuss the emergence of novel technologies. Join us in the effort to make sense of web 3, blockchain, and whatever the metaverse is through a lens of interactive entertainment. You’ll hear about recent trends, winners & losers, and an outlook on what’s to come.
