The Gamelab conference is one that is geared towards the industry, rather than the consumers. The purpose of the conference is to reach the professional and developmental side of the industry, rather than speak to the fans directly.
Therefore, the expectations are not as high as it could be. We shouldn’t really expect any groundbreaking announcements from the conference, regardless of the eminent people speaking.

The conference has confirmed the presence of Mike Pondsmith (who is currently working with CD Projekt Red on Cyberpunk 2077). Amy Hennig, who was the lead director on the Uncharted series at Naughty Dog, will also be present.
More notable personalities include Shawn Layden, former President of worldwide operations for Sony (also the guy who comes out first at the PlayStation E3 presentations). Sticking with Sony, Mark Cerny, the lead architect on the PS5, would also make an appearance.
Rather than give his own presentation or keynote address, Mark will be speaking to Ken Levine, the creator of Bioshock. Ken Levine is one of the most respected game developers and creative directors in the industry, after his work on Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite.
He has since parted ways with 2K Games and is now at the helm of a smaller studio. He carries a very interesting perspective with him, as one who has been at the top of the AAA gaming space, and who is now working in the indie scene.
Altogether, the lineup for Gamelab Barcelona is stacked. We as fans may not have much to look forward to in the event. However, the industry may be better off overall because of it.
