Our outstanding speakers set the scene for the discussions and deals that are made around the summit. The networking functions then allow our attendees an opportunity to mingle with the speakers, delegates and companies that are driving growth in games today. Below, you'll find a breakdown for each of our D.I.C.E. Summit programming opportunities.


Our speakers take center stage and address our conference theme with engaging and unique talks that are available for all attendees to watch. These main stage presentations are made up of various kinds of talks including solo presentations, fireside chats and panels.

Roundtables are intimate, moderated group discourses where attendees can discuss amongst peers a variety of topics important to the interactive entertainment industry.  The roundtables will take place in a room with multiple roundtables occurring simultaneously, seating 10 per table including the table leader. The objective is to trade ideas/thoughts with other engaged individuals with similar interests and questions. Year over year the roundtables are often described as a favorite amongst attendees because of the interesting conversations and the access it provides. 

Workshops are smaller, breakout sessions geared towards a greater level of audience interaction and sharing. Panels and discussions engage with an audience of approximately 50 people and emphasizes joint exploration of ideas and concepts relevant to the industry and workplace.
