Gamelab Barcelona 2020 Live confirms its XVI edition to be held online between June 22 and 25. A new name for the event that goes digital, a measure that allows it to adapt to the world situation and facilitate its access from any corner of the planet. This format, which is perfectly suited to the nature of the digital leisure industry, allows the organization to maintain its commitment and support to the sector.
