Did you miss a session from the Future of Work Summit? Head over to our Future of Work Summit on-demand library to stream.

Our GamesBeat Summit 2019 has come and gone. We learned about reinvention and communities, about dealing with games that launch to huge audiences and rabid response — and how to communicate with them better. We gave one of the speakers, Insomniac Games’ Ted Price, a visionary award for his contributions to the game industry over the past quarter-decade.

And you can see the Day One agenda here.

GamesBeat has gathered videos of all the first day’s sessions from our Twitch and YouTube livestreams. You can watch all the Day Two talks here.
