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.
