The DICE Summit is perhaps the most elite event in the game industry. It features talks from the superstars of games and an awards show that is akin to the Oscars of gaming. The Las Vegas event is coming around again for the 15th time, and you’ll be able to watch it live this week.
As we noted in our preview story, the DICE Summit and its DICE Awards events are more than just a gathering place for gaming’s leaders. It’s a place where they try to set the tone for the year and take stock of the cultural touchstones that gaming has created in our lives. It’s a bit of intellectual chaos, and the result is usually a good story or two (or 10).
Established in 2002 by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), the DICE Summit and its accompanying DICE Awards highlight the very best in games. Aside from my own conferences (GamesBeat Summit and GamesBeat 2016), the DICE Summit is always one of my favorite conferences of the year.
