Details

Whether you've been an indie for life or are still learning the ropes, join us on April 20th for the Full Indie Summit!

Full Indie presents a day of lectures by leading independent game developers that will teach and inspire. The speakers are behind some of the biggest indie hits in recent years and have spoken at GDC, the Independent Games Summit, and PAX Dev just to name a few. Each talk will also feature a Q & A period for you to ask the experts your own specific questions.

Attendees and speakers from all over are welcome and encouraged to attend, but be sure to buy your ticket in advance. It’s a not-for-profit event and the tickets are simply cover the venue, so if you’ve been unable to afford conferences such as GDC, now’s your chance to experience what you’ve been missing.

The summit will take place at the Rio Theater on Broadway and Commercial, easily accessible by transit.

The talks will start at 10AM up to 4PM, with a break for lunch.

Due to restrictions at the location, this event is for ages 19+.
