New This Year at GaymerX – Diversity Theatre

The Expo Hall at GaymerX this year features a first, The Diversity Theater. Here companies and organizations will showcase their initiatives, offerings, and recruitment opportunities. Reinforcing the truth that diversity isn’t merely accepted in today’s game and tech industry, it’s in demand.

We’re excited about this great addition to our expo hall, where attendees can meet representatives from companies like Intel, Microsoft, LinkedIn and Patreon!

Microsoft Session: ID@Xbox Program overview 4:30 – 5:20 pm

Becoming an independent developer and shipping games is easier than it ever has been, but finding success as a developer is as challenging as ever. In this talk, you’ll learn about Microsoft’s ID@Xbox program for independent developers, as well as our take on essential issues that developers need to address during development to maximize your chances for commercial success with your game.

Returning for GaymerX 4 – Safe Spaces!

Hi friends and family!

Remember last year when we introduced a POC Safe Space at GX3? It was a hit and welcome by our POC community members. During post-convention feedback, we heard that others would like a safe space as well, and because we want GaymerX to be a safe, happy and enjoyable convention, this year we’ve expanded our Safe Space to a dedicated room for the entire convention. Unfortunately, due to space we can’t have a room per group, but there is one room for those who may need some time away, or who might want to discuss a panel they just were at, or just meet others in a quiet, less crowded space.

Questions, concerns or other issues can be directed to diversity@midboss.com  and will be answered by our Diversity Liaison, Tanya DePass tanyad@gaymerx.com

Announcing: GaymerX East!

Hey Gaymers!

The time has certainly flown since our last update: there are only two weeks left before GaymerX Year Four begins! Since our last update we’ve been working hard on getting our convention ready for you so we can make this year our best yet. We’re so excited to be able to share it with you.

We’re also happy to announce that Microsoft will have presents for all of you who come to GaymerX. We can’t talk too much about the goodies yet- we don’t want to spoil the surprise- but we can tell you that we’re going to have a special surprise for Xbox users. You’ll find out more soon!!

Oh, and speaking of Microsoft: last week we announced our very first east coast event at the Microsoft Technology Center! We’re coming to NYC for two days of games, dev, and community building with all of you and it’s gonna be great. Submissions are open for panels and our Indie Space, and we’ll be revealing more information as we get closer to the event. We made a cute subdomain so you can keep up with everything as we announce it at http://east.gaymerx.com

That’s all from us for now. Don’t forget that if you have any question can reach out to us at anytime via sales@gaymerx.com.

See you soon at GaymerX Year Four!!!

Last day for hotel rooms!!

Today’s the last day to book a hotel room for GaymerX at the group rate ($145)! After this, room prices will likely be double!

Please use this link to book a hotel now and tell anyone you know who was planning to go!
