GIC 2023 Postponed

The Games Industry Conference team regret to announce that we are postponing our 2023 event. We know this will come as a disappointment to all of our exhibitors and delegates and sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.

We’re grateful that so many members of the industry have been keen to register for delegate passes. However, despite some great early sales of exhibition space, the unfortunate reality is that the uptake from exhibitors has not been as strong as we anticipated.

While we could go ahead with the event anyway, doing so would mean compromising on the vision we promised our partners and those who had already signed up to attend. That is something we will not do.

By postponing, we’ll be able to offer a longer lead time for exhibitors to factor the event into their budgets during this period of economic uncertainty. Pushing the date back also allows us to generate even more sign-ups from retailers so that there’s less risk with coming to a brand new event.

We’re also speaking with the venue to identify our options for changing the date. While we await clarity on this situation, we will continue talking with our current exhibitors about the options for refunds/rollovers on their bookings. Of course, we still welcome enquiries about exhibitor booths and registration for delegate passes for the 2024 event.
