To help you discover upcoming game industry events calendar that includes conferences, conventions, festivals and many other types of events, we post a consolidated list here on Events for Gamers each month.
April may mean the passing of GDC and other spring starter events, but it also comes with a big ramp up in events per month through the rest of the spring and summer! Events continue to become either hybrid or are online, but we did see a large uptick in onsite events going back to the normal way of things this month. We’re also seeing more events coming up that extend into industries like bitcoin, NFTs, and others that previously had little or nothing to do with games.
Just like last month, online events (both virtual/online and hybrid) are not going away, and in fact are also seeing continued growth. Just like with the working from home crowd, the event industry shift has been a monumental and permanent one.
