Melbourne International Games Week is Asia Pacific’s largest digital games celebration featuring conferences, events and activities for the games industry, games enthusiasts, the general public and educationalists.

Held annually in October, Melbourne International Games Week aims to:

  • bring Australia’s games industry together to showcase, celebrate and build local capability and connections
  • build MIGW into the pre-eminent digital games event in the Asia Pacific region
  • connect international attendees with Victorian talent.

Due to the ongoing impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe, Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) will look a little different this year.

As we cannot meet physically in 2020, all MIGW events will be required to connect us virtually.

With so many changes to how we meet and play, we understand it will be a year like no other, however, knowing our committed and loyal community, it may just be the best Melbourne International Games Week to date.
