October 2023 Game Industry Events Calendar

Happy spooky October! Red alert, we’re overloaded on events this month! We thought September was crazy busy, but check out below what’s going on in October! We’ve achieved yet another new record of how many events you can attend in a month (go ahead, we dare you to attend all of these at once!), thanks to your contributions in submitting events to the calendar.

Notice how few Online/Virtual or even Hybrid events there are this month? Everything is going back to on-site… for events, that makes sense. For a job in the industry? Well, that’s not what this post is about, so let’s move on :).

We’ll often highight a ‘Top Event’ to showcase, but there are just so many this month to choose from. For B2C conventions, take a look at PAX Aus, GeekGirlCon, EGX, among others. For conferences, take your pick, they are all rather great events with their own unique qualities. GAconf from IGDA and GamesBeat are always favorites of ours, but so are nearly every other one on this list.

Check out this month’s event list below. You can also click here for the main calendar that includes events into 2023 and beyond.
