The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences is gearing up for the 5th Annual D.I.C.E. Europe event, which will be taking place September 10-12, 2017. Over the course of the three-day summit, leading European video game executives can take advantage of networking opportunities, listen to key players speak of their experiences in the industry, and participate in roundtable discussions covering some of gaming's biggest ideas and trends. This year's theme? Made Better.
The European summit will kick off in Portugal, at the Hotel Cascais Miragem.
Speakers this year will examine the full spectrum of what drives the creative development process within the interactive entertainment community. What are the measures of success, and how do we design towards them? How do we evolve and balance innovation risk? How do we inspire individuals and teams to drive change?
D.I.C.E. Europe speakers will be the first in the D.I.C.E. event series this year to share their personal insights on fostering creativity and prosperity within the video game industry today as well as looking to the future. Here is the first round of speakers, announced this week by the AIAS:
