The Serious Play Conference is a leadership conference for professionals exploring the use of game-based learning, sharing their experience and working together to shape the future of training and education. Speakers share their knowledge and experience creating or using games or simulations in the corporation, classroom, healthcare institution, government, military and many other industries, offering tips on how to move game-based education programs ahead. Attendees listen, share and participate actively in informal sessions and workshops. Those working on games get input from the community. Those going back to improve their own organizations take with them a network of professionals, allowing them to continue to discuss their own challenges and get input from peers.
