August was chock-full of all sorts of great events to attend, and it’s looking like September is going to be the same! We’ve seen an interesting mix of online, on-site, and now hybrid events that combine the best of both worlds. What will stick long-term? We bet on virtual staying for many events, but hybrid has a lot of potential too. On-site will of course eventually make a strong comeback, but not this year.
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.
View this month’s event list below. You can also click here for the main calendar view that includes events into 2022 and beyond.
Please note that due to world circumstances, some events that are listed as having a location are, at least for the meantime, online in some form. We expect the accuracy here to resolve soon as we reach into 2022.
