History & Future
In 2016, the very first edition of Up The Game was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The following year in 2017 we announced the second edition Connecting Creators, and in 2018 The Future of Experience, which we both hosted in the colossal dome prison in Breda. After this year's edition 'Where Fiction Meets Reality' we want to widen the scope. Broaden the horizon. Heighten the senses. We also want to celebrate our 5th year anniversary as the largest international Escape Room & Real Life Gaming conference in the world. We are proud and very excited to announce the theme for the next Up The Game in 2020, "The Bigger Picture"! The conference will be held in The Netherlands. The exact location will be announced in the near future.
How do we elevate our experiences to a higher level and which developments are going to enable us to further improve the industry as a whole? How can we integrate new techniques that will further enhance the player experience? Nobody knows for sure what the future holds, but we believe we can build it together and make ideas come alive. Let's Up The Game!
