Melbourne International Games Week 2017



CONNECTING GAMERS, TECHNOLOGY & CULTURE
22-29 OCTOBER 2017

Melbourne International Games Week is Asia Pacific’s largest digital games celebration featuring conferences, events and activities for the games industry, games enthusiasts, general public and educationalists.

This year, over 1,000 game developers, many from overseas, participate in key industry-only events including Game Connect Asia Pacific, Unite Melbourne, as exhibitors at PAX Australia, the Women in Games Lunch and the Australian Game Developer Awards.

Many more people from the general public to games enthusiasts don their cosplay outfits and attend MIGW Family Sunday: Mario and his Friends and PAX Australia; play Wayfinder Live, a street game by digital artist Troy Innocent; and attend ACMI’s Code Breakers exhibition celebrating the achievements of Australian and New Zealand women working in video games.

The Education in Games Summit informs teachers about new technologies supporting the delivery of the digital curriculum and experience what some of the more progressive schools are doing in this area.

The week’s events are held in close proximity in some of Melbourne’s biggest and best event venues, from the Australian Centre for the Moving Image to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

INDUSTRY
This year, Melbourne International Games week will host over one thousand developers from Australia and overseas who will take part in a huge range of industry events including GCAP Loading, Game Connect Asia Pacific and Unite Melbourne. Studios will also be on hand at events such as the Women in Games Lunch and the Australian Game Developers’ Awards.

PUBLIC
Each year, everyone from casual to hardcore gamers hits PAX Aus and families enjoy ACMI’s MIGW Family Sunday. The city is transformed into a digital playground with Wayfinder Live – an augmented reality live game exploring Melbourne’s laneways. The Code Breakers exhibition celebrates the achievements of Australian and NZ female gaming pioneers, while The Freeplay Showcase demonstrates experimental games live on stage.

EDUCATION
Melbourne International Games Week is once again supporting the Education in Games Summit which helps inform teachers about new and emerging technologies that can support and enrich the delivery of digital curriculum. The summit also offers visitors the chance to experience how technology is currently used by some of Australia’s most cutting-edge and progressive schools.
