As research shows that hands on, experiential activity better engages participants, stimulates a higher level of brain activity and improves retention, the use of games and simulations is gathering steam as a more productive technique for education and training. Metaari, the leading analyst firm in the industry, forecast in 2022 a 27.8% global CAGR for the next five years, which would quadruple revenues to more than $10 billion by 2027.

Serious Play Conference, a three-day, practical, experiential learning event now in its 15th year, brings together serious game developers and instructional designers; training directors implementing learning programs in government, nonprofit, business and healthcare; K12 administrators and faculty; and higher education faculty. Speakers from Turkey, the Netherlands, India and Spain are already scheduled for this year, along with leading U.S. and Canadian learning experts.


Registration pricing start at $100 for college and high school students. Early bird discounts for 25% off ticket prices are available until June 1.
