For the first time in four years, our popular Unite conference is back, live and in person. Whether you’re new to Unity, a seasoned pro, or just curious about our real-time 3D technology, Unite 2023 will celebrate the vibrant Unity community in all its glory.
We have an exciting agenda planned that covers everything games, including our renowned Keynote – full of inspiring content, crowd-pleasing announcements, and walk-ons from people behind some of your favorite games. During the day, there’ll be 30+ deep-dive technical sessions organized into four tracks – Ecosystem, AI, Multiplayer, and Growth. Our team will be spotlighting the latest Unity tools and features, demonstrating timesaving workflows, sharing proven strategies for ensuring game success, and giving you a sneak peek of what’s coming soon. Members of the Unity community, including developers from top studios, will be highlighting how they use Unity to achieve amazing games and experiences and run them on multiple platforms.
And before, during, and after these sessions, there’ll be parties and plenty of great opportunities to get with your peers and connect with like-minded devs.
Here are just some of the tantalizing details about what you can expect at Unite 2023.
Unite 2023 will take place in Amsterdam on November 15–16 at two main venues:
The Unite 2023 Keynote will take place on November 16 at the Taets Art and Event Park at 10:00 am local time, with Interim CEO and President Jim Whitehurst expected to start the address plus many product experts and top studios taking the stage.
As well as our Welcome Party at Heineken Experience on November 15, there’s a Happy Hour and an After-Party at the end of the conference. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to network with your peers.
Now for the juicy stuff, let’s get into some of the biggest topics you will hear about during Unite 2023.
As with every year, the newest innovations are top of mind for game developers everywhere. When it comes to AI, discover how Unity Sentis and Unity Muse are helping devs push the limits of creativity and build previously unimaginable experiences. Next, hear more about how we worked closely with Apple to provide a deep integration of visionOS with Unity PolySpatial, enabling creators to bring beloved games and apps to a whole new audience and ecosystem, or create something entirely new. Then, in the XR space, find out how Unity is helping developers create and bring their games to platforms like PSVR2 and Meta Quest 3.
How do you actually make a living from games or build a successful project? At Unite, get actionable insights to help you apply business-school principles and turn a good game into a great business. Then hear studio success stories about how solutions like Wētā Tools, SyncSketch, Parsec, and Unity Gaming Services helped bring characters and entire games to life.
With roadmap deep dives, you will learn the latest ways you can build a better game with Unity. This means announcements about what’s next in graphics technology, Data-Oriented Technology Stack (DOTS), ambitious multiplayer solutions, improved iteration and collaboration tools, and the best options for mobile monetization – all with an added sneak peek at what’s ahead.
The fun, however, will have to wait for November. Not to worry, though, because you can catch up with last year’s Unite via our YouTube playlist and watch the most popular sessions (press play below to check one out right now).
