Game Devs Of Color Expo Returns Online This September

Organizers for the Game Devs of Color Expo revealed this morning that they will return in 2021 with an online event this September. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, a lot of events went scrambling to create plans for online conventions, and GDoCExpo turned out to be one of the more successful cases when it came to setting up something that both reached out to fans and also remained interactive. Now we know today that they will be coming back with their second online event, which will take place from September 23rd-27th, 2021. What's more, they're officially taking submissions for the event as they are looking for speakers, as well as tabletop and video game developers interested in participating. If you're interested in submitting to be a part of the game side of things, you can go here, and if you're looking to be a speaker, you can go here. We have a little more info on the event below, but we're guessing we won't hear more on it until the Summer when they start finalizing plans.

Now in its sixth year, Game Devs of Color Expo is dedicated to amplifying the creative power held by people of color in games. Every year since its successful freshman run in 2016, Game Devs of Color Expo has seen exponential growth, expanding into an energizing space for attendees to play the hottest upcoming games while learning from a series of exclusive talks by amazing speakers. Normally hosted at the Schomburg Center in Harlem, New York, GDoCExpo first went online in 2020 in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Last year's online event featured developer talks, interviews, panels, and a lineup of tabletop and video games, as well as a digital direct showcase and Steam event. The event saw more than 1,500 virtual attendees.
