The Local Game Community Organizes roundtable is for people who are currently organizing events and communities in their areas for independent or professional game developers or people who are looking to start a game developer community.

In building those communities, the organizers can often find themselves without a community of their own to lean on for knowledge and support. This roundtable invites games industry community organizers of all experience levels to come together, meet one another and learn from each other's experience in building and growing their respective communities and forming the basis for a support network for organizers around the world.

Day one is for everyone and will be a high-level Q&A style talk where participants will get a chance to meet, share stories and ask questions of other organizers. Day two is for people who are either experts in a certain subject and want to lead a small group around that topic or have questions about specific topics and want to be a part of small group discussions to drill down into your areas of need.
