Game Carnival is a free virtual event that provides networking, education, and inspiration for everyone in the game industry, from large enterprise gaming companies to one-stop-shop developers. Last year, we hosted thousands of industry attendees, 220+ exhibitors, and 5000+ meetings and we’re excited to bring the virtual event back on May 11-12, 2021.
Game Carnival is for all video game companies, industry professionals, and gaming enthusiasts.
Game Carnival is free to attend for all: video game companies, industry professionals, and the general public.
Game Carnival is hosted on GenXP powered by TurboPlay. You can access the event on Windows, macOS, and mobile using any browser.
Game Carnival has dates open only for industry-qualified attendees, and dates open to the general public. Please check the schedule for more details.
For industry, select ‘Industry registration’ and create your profile. Once approved, you will receive an email with login credentials and access instructions.
For the general public, select ‘General public registration' and create your profile. You will receive an email with login credentials and access instructions for the dates when Game Carnival is open to consumers.
Exhibitors are available at the virtual booths during trade show hours. Voice and text chatting is available for real-time interaction between users.
You can contact game developers outside of the virtual event as well.
Industry attendees can virtually meet with each other anywhere in Game Carnival, in the private meeting rooms, or at the designated MeetToMatch meeting area.
Industry attendees can plan their meetings in advance on the MeetToMatch platform (you can use the same log-in credentials that you've received for the Game Carnival).
You can find more information about the MeetToMatch platform here.

Please follow the steps below if voice chat does not work properly.
1. Go to the Settings tab, and click on the Audio tab to adjust your settings.
2. Check that your headphones are connected and set as the default playback device.
3. Check that your microphone is connected and set as the default recording device.
4. Check that you have the latest audio drivers installed
5. Disable all other audio devices.
If your avatar becomes invisible, it may be because your frame rate has fallen below the minimum threshold and resulted in a kick from the server. In that case, turn off all the other unnecessary programs on your PC and retry connecting.
