Melbourne International Games Week

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, 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.

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.

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.

Please be aware that some public events are free and others, like PAX require a ticket. The industry and education events also have their own ticketing system. Games Week conferences happen in a number of central locations across Melbourne including the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
