Following the success of the all-online Game Devs Of Color Expo last September, the event will be returning in its online-only format in 2021. GDoCExpo has announced that it will take place on September 23-27 this year, with submissions now open for both games and speakers.
GDoCExpo is now in its sixth year, with the Expo normally taking place at the Schomburg Center in Harlem, New York. Last year’s online-only event saw over 1500 virtual attendees enjoy content that included developer talks, interviews, panels, and a number of featured video games and tabletop games.
We’re thrilled to announce that #GDoCExpo is back online for 2021! Our 6th annual event will feature talks from #gamedevs of all backgrounds. Grow your career, connect, and learn. Save the date for Sept. 23-26! Stay tuned for registration details. https://t.co/l3hbQmFQ9j pic.twitter.com/4lbDxmbC1H
