Gamelab Barcelona is a market-accelerator event for games and interactive entertainment companies and projects. This event’s main objective is helping out the growth of new business initiatives in the European games sector, with special attention to those ones in an early stage of development. Gamelab also serves as an effective hub for local companies looking to expand their business globally and for those international companies that want to enter the European and/or Latin American markets.

Games & Digital Entertainment Conference

Top creators and executives from all around the world analyze the technical, creative and business trends and challenges that will guide the future of digital entertainment in Europe and across the world. Hot topics are established and emerging game markets, next game platforms, digital stores, online gaming, new business models, social and mobile gaming, etc..

The speaking talent at Gamelab is impressive and the audience is enthusiastic! There is an energy to the event quite different from what I've seen at other conferences, my week in Barcelona was definitely unforgettable.
