Why Serious Play?

Explore how the power of play, games and gamification are transforming education, training, and knowledge mobilization. Experience interactive sessions, compelling speakers, and cutting-edge research. This is where learning and innovation come to play.

Practical Cases

We champion the philosophy that we learn best by doing. Participate in interactive workshops and sessions led by experts, scholars, and innovative practitioners. Expand your toolkit with a wealth of practical examples, research-backed models, and compelling case studies. 

Diverse Sectors

We believe that innovation is sparked by cross-sector learning. Our six tracks offer a panoramic view of gameful approaches that showcase real-world successes and breakthroughs in education, healthcare, cultural institutions, research, corporate, not-for-profits and government. 


Community is the vibrant heart of Serious Play. Connect with an eclectic mix of presenters and participants with a shared passion for leveraging play and games. The conference facilitates networking events and diverse formats for the exchange of innovative ideas, strategies, and success stories.
