In this session, hosted by Design Network North and PROTO, we’ll be sharing some of the emerging trends influencing the future of gaming as well as presenting some of the future gaming personas to have on your radar.

Get to know who will be buying games, how will they be playing them and what will they want from the experience.

This will be followed by a panel session with key industry leaders who'll be giving their response to this.
