The GI Investment Summit returns to PAX West 2023

Shawn Layden and Valve keynote Seattle show, with tinyBuild as headline sponsor

The Investment Summit is once again coming to Seattle this August.

It will take place at the Seattle Convention Center on Thursday, August 31st. Tickets are on sale now for as low as $50 + booking fee.

This year's event, the first since 2019, is headlined by a keynote fireside chat with Shawn Layden, the former chairman of PlayStation Studios, and current advisor to various games businesses such as Tencent and Streamline Media.

Layden will be discussing current games industry trends, how we got here and where we are going.

Alongside Layden, Valve will be joining the event to discuss how visibility works on Steam during a live talk.

The event is headline sponsored by Hello Neighbor publisher tinyBuild, who will also be speaking at the event. CEO Alex Nichiporchik will discuss the importance of emergent gameplay, and why the industry is not seeing enough games with it.

The final speaker will be announced soon.

The heart of the event will be our meeting system, where developers, publishers and investors can connect throughout the afternoon. Tickets for the event are on sale now and are $50 (+ booking fee) for developers and $200 (+ booking fee) for publishers and investors. Tickets include lunch, refreshments and two days of access to PAX West.

Developers and publishers who are exhibiting at PAX are able to attend the event for free. Simply contact Kevin Brady or Sean Gonzales to receive your passes.

"At tinyBuild we believe video games are the most exciting industry out there, and we are happy to be supporting the GI Investment Summit," comments tinyBuild CEO Alex Nichiporchik "We're excited to meet talented developers, especially those working on emergent gameplay projects."

Some limited sponsorship opportunities are still available. Contact George Corner for more details.
