Thanks to everyone who came out and played with us!

This year’s event was so magical and we know it’s because of the time we spent with all of you. We had such amazing attendees, staff, sponsors, panelists, exhibitors, performers, bosses, and a great hotel crew that brought it together in the best way.

We’re looking for feedback on the event, so please fill out the following survey – Click here to take the GaymerX Year Four Survey!

Our team has been resting and working hard behind the things to help share what it was like to be there, but in the meantime you can check out these great posts about GaymerX Year Four!

Feeling super inspired by GX4 and want to share that with our attendees? We decided to extend our panel submissions to the 14th! That’s Friday, so you still have two days to put something together and send it our way. We love new voices so please submit even if you’re feeling shy!

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.org

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.org.

See you soon at GaymerX Year Four!!!
