Information about the Game Awards and the 1UP conference

  • Presented by comedian William Boeva, both the conference event and the Belgian Game Awards will require separate tickets. First, the conference. It will take place all day long on Friday the 15th of February from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m, so this will start before the general event even starts.
  • The conference is aimed at gaming professionals and their future colleagues, as well as people who want to take their interest in gaming to the next level.
  • Speakers will include Kate Edwards (Geogrify), Robbert-Jan Brems (Unity), Chanel Summers (VR studios), Dave Voyles (Microsoft), Steven Leunens (4entertainment) and James Deighan (Mega Cat Studios).
  • After the conference, on the 15th from 7:30 p.m. onwards, the Belgian Game Awards will be presented. As any traditional awards show, the Belgian Game Awards will award numerous developers and games with categories they are involved in.
