BGA Connects kicks off the year with its first Signature Event in London

Blockchain Game Alliance is proud to announce its first event of the year! We are kicking off 2024 with BGA Connects London, our signature satellite event taking place on the 23rd of January at the multi-sensory futuristic Hijingo Bingo, London.

Curating the best projects and speakers within the web3 gaming ecosystem, this afternoon-long event will host a range of activities for BGA members and invites the wider community to join us for an action-packed web3 gaming day.
