Hello, 2023, and conference season!
We’re so excited for this year’s opportunities to meet new and old friends at the many upcoming gaming conferences. The FarBridge Away Team will be traveling to some of our favorite industry events this year, and we’d love to say hello, catch up, and talk shop if you’re also attending these shows! Here is a list of a few cons you can find us at in 2023:
DICE in Las Vegas, February 21–23, 2023
The prestigious DICE Summit (which stands for Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) is a great event early in the year that brings together video game creators and business leaders from around the world to discuss the state of the industry and our shared future. DICE has been a favorite show of ours for years!
SXSW in Austin, March 10–19, 2023
The SXSW Conference & Festivals celebrate the convergence of the tech, film, and music industries — and video games have a bit of all of the above! Having this gathering of creative and passionate discipline-blending folks happen practically in our backyard is one of the many perks of having our original FarBridge headquarters in Austin, TX. (While many of us remain in Texas, our company is now completely distributed and working remotely from all over the country.)
GDC in San Francisco, March 20–24, 2023
The Game Developers Conference (GDC) brings the development community together to exchange ideas, solve problems, and shape the future of the industry. We love its collegial atmosphere and always find ourselves learning new awesome things.
We’re especially excited to catch our Studio Creative Director, Richard Rouse III, in his element during his annual “Rules of the Game” session. Make sure you check it out!
Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, August 23–27, 2023
Later this year we’ll make our way across the pond to Cologne, Germany for Gamescom, the world’s largest event for computer and video games — and Europe’s largest business platform for the games industry. We’ve loved our time at Gamescom in years past, and are looking forward to many great meetings and maybe a Kölch or two. Bis bald, Deutschland!
If you find yourself at any of these conferences, be sure to reach out to our Executive Producer, Donald Harris, who is always on the lookout to make new connections and friends in our industry. We’ll likely do some additional traveling this year, so stay tuned for more soon!
