If you want to hear what the great minds responsible for shaping the gaming industry have to say, you won’t want to miss this.

GamesBeat 2014 kicks off tomorrow, and we’re gathering some of the industry’s most important luminaries to discuss the future. If you can’t make it (tickets), that’s OK because we’re broadcasting some of the most important talks live to gameplay livestreaming site Twitch.

To watch, just tune in to the video below starting at around 8:45 a.m. on Monday:

Last year, Twitch helped us livestream GamesBeat to the Web, and we racked up more than 1 million views throughout the event. The broadcasting site, which is now a subsidiary of Amazon following a $2 billion acquisition, is back to help us again.

Highlights of the event that you should keep an eye out for include a fireside chats with Electronic Arts chief executive officer Andrew Wilson on Monday at 9 a.m. and Twitch senior vice president of sales Kym Nelson on Tuesday at 1:50 p.m.

For a full schedule, you can check the event page right here. Keep in mind that we will not broadcast GamesBeat University or the breakout sessions (with the exception of the e-sports panel on Tuesday). And if you really want to take advantage of the networking, get yourself a ticket here.
