A game development summit like no other, the Play by Play conference will bring game developers of all skill levels together for a full day of low-pressure learning and sharing. We aim to engage delegates with a fun, light-hearted atmosphere and a playful approach to improving our craft. This year’s theme is “voyagers” and reflects the many journeys - diegetic and real - that surround our country, our industry and our craft.
The conference is being held at the Te Wharewaka o Pōneke, Taranaki Wharf, 2 Taranaki St, Wellington. Registration for the conference opens at 8:00am and the keynote talk begins at 9:00am.
The awards ceremony will be held again at Mac’s Function Centre, 4 Taranaki St, Wellington, 6011. Please bring your conference pass as your admission ticket, and take note the awards night's dress code is formal. This event is 18+, and anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Mac’s Function Centre is an accessible venue.
More detailed information about these events will be provided to attendees via email.
