Two Bit Circus- America's First Micro-Amusement Park

We had so much fun last year we are heading back again to Two Bit Circus, a 40,000 square-foot games-meets-Ready Player One virtual reality playground in the up-and-coming Arts District of downtown Los Angeles.  

 

This year we will roll out more immersive entertainment experiences for our guests including a fun scavenger hunt with cool prizes for the winners.  And of course you will have the opportunity to immerse yourselves in the showroom with multi-person virtual reality, narrative-based escape/story rooms, indie arcades, and more. 

You asked, we listened — New this year

More sessions

Three different stages will feature more speakers to cover more content than ever before.

More fun  

To take advantage of our setting at Two Bit Circus we're planning fun activities between sessions including a prize-winning contest.  

More networking

We're building in more time for conversations among our guests to facilitate deeper dialogues and connections.

More tech exposure 

New to GamesBeat will be a games expo where we will showcase new gaming technologies you need to know about.

WHAT OUR ATTENDEES THINK ABOUT GAMESBEAT

The best thing about GamesBeat is that everyone’s engaged in [the sessions] but the lobby networking is unparalleled. We’ve had some of the greatest of the greats in the games industry just chatting and bumping into each other — which is frankly why you come.

The unique thing about GamesBeat is the great content. And at the same time, you have decision makers, pretty senior folks together and [you] see old friends and meet new people in the industry that can actually move your business forward.

I have to be very selective when I go to a games event. And the events done by VentureBeat and Dean are the best. I don’t want to mention names [of other events], but most of them are not curated, they’re not attended by C-level guys.

People who attend [GamesBeat] are serious about being here because they know the quality.

I’m just astounded by the line-up.  If you go somewhere like E3, they might have a similar line-up but you have to fight tooth and nail just to have a chance to speak with them.

This is where the money is going to be made, this is where the excitement is going to come. I couldn’t be happier to be here to see it all in action before it happens.
