This year’s D.I.C.E. theme will explore the idea, Trailblazers. At D.I.C.E., game makers will share insights into the groundbreaking principals and tools that drive and empower them, their teams, and the community at large to create better worlds in which to play and a better world in which to live.

Unmatched networking opportunities are a hallmark of the D.I.C.E. Summit experience. This year’s networking events include Topgolf Las Vegas, Magic: The Gathering, go-karting, yoga, and poker tournaments, a full day of a single-track speaker program, the popular roundtable discussions, intimate workshop learnings, lunches and happy hours.
