Hello EGX Fans,
We are excited to announce that EGX and EGX Rezzed, sponsored by Virgin Media, are planning to return in 2021!
Our main goal has always been to create a safe and accepting space for our community of passionate gamers.
We’re announcing our proposed dates now to help partners plan for how they might attend this year, as well as provide a chance to start conversations about how to bring attendees, panelists, exhibitors, and our broader community together at each event. It takes a lot of prep to create the EGX events that you know and love, so we have to start this planning early - but your safety is always our highest priority, and we will only run these events if it is safe to do so.
If things go well there is a good chance that we will be able to put on live events in the summer and the latter half of this year.
In that optimistic scenario, our new event calendar for 2021 will be:
Gi.biz Live: Online - 14-16 April, Online
EGX Rezzed - 15-17 July, Tobacco Dock, London
EGX - 7-10 October, ExCeL, London
If things do go well, expect tickets, panel announcements, exhibitor updates, and the like to arrive later this year, closer to the respective shows. You can always follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for more regular updates or even sign up to our newsletter.
Gi.biz Live: Online is a new digital event in the GI Live series designed to support indie studios through connections and funding. It will include a bustling Discord filled with special guests; in-depth roundtables and advisors; keynote sessions streaming on YouTube; a private meeting system (both curated and self-service) to meet investors and collaborators and a showcase website to promote trailers and playable games for consumers.
The event will conclude with the Indie Publishing Awards, which will highlight the best unsigned games, best indie publishers, best investors, best crowd-funding campaigns and more.
Whatever form EGX events take in 2021, we are dedicated to bringing you all the community, content, and competition we've become known for, while continuing to create space for new, up-and-coming, and marginalised voices in gaming. Bringing fans and game creators together to celebrate gaming and build relationships is what EGX is about - and it's our job to make sure that we make that safe for you.
