Games Industry Open Day: Made in Sydney AM Session

Games Industry Open Day: Made in Sydney (Morning)


Engage with the world's fastest growing creative industry in Vivid Sydney's Games District. Estimated to be worth almost AU$280 billion globally by 2023, video games are bigger businesses than films, music and books – and some of them are made right here in Sydney. You will get a chance to meet the people behind these titles, play their games and listen to a range of industry talks.


The morning event is targeted at a younger audience. You will get a chance to hear about pathways into the games industry: it is a big business and offers legitimate career trajectories but how do you actually get into it? A panel of industry professionals will talk about their journeys and answer visitors' questions.


Visitors will also be able to pitch their game. Everyone has an idea for a video game, now here is your chance to present yours to a panel of industry experts. International publishers and local developers will offer feedback and in the process also help you better understand what is involved in making a video game.


Last but not least, you will get a chance to catch a rare glimpse behind the scenes of Wargaming, makers of some of the most successful free-to-play games in the world. Titles such as World of Tanks or World of Warships attract players in the millions and engage them in captivating online battles. Wargaming operate globally and employ over 5,000 people worldwide. In Sydney, they run one of the largest studios in Australia. Hear about their history, their current projects, and talk to people behind the scenes to better understand the mechanics of game making and everything that comes with it.
