When and Where

Join us on Tuesday 23rd – Wednesday 24th October 2018 for Gamesforum Seattle, taking place at the Bell Harbor Conference Center.

Venue

The Bell Harbor Conference Center is a delightful venue located on Seattle’s waterfront.

Only a stone’s throw from the Space Needle, the Belltown area and Pike Place Market, the Center offers a spacious and comfortable environment in which to do business.

Featuring a bustling expo space, plenty of comfortable seating, a number of fantastic conference rooms and supported by an incredible event team, the Bell Harbor is one of the best venues in the game conference calendar.

Why Seattle

The Seattle area – and Washington State more broadly – is one of the major video game hubs in the United States according to the Electronic Software Association.

Its data shows that Washington State has the third highest number of video game companies by state in the country. The metropolitan statistical area of Seattle-Bellevue-Tacoma area employs over 6000 people, roughly 10% of the overall US industry.

The region also plays host to a wide selection of companies in the sector, ranging from the likes of Bungie, Microsoft Game Studios, Nintendo of America, and Valve to the many exciting growing developers who are members of IGDA Seattle and Seattle Indies.

This is why we believe that Seattle is an ideal home for Gamesforum. Its reputation and role as one of the major game hubs in the US fits perfectly with our ambition to bring together the industry, giving us the chance to bring together developers from the rest of the gaming world together on the West Coast.
