BGA Prepares for an Epic Tokyo Game Show 2023

BGA is heading to Tokyo Game Show for the first time. We see this as an important step to connect with traditional and web3 gaming projects globally. We are excited to deepen our connection with BGA members in the region and be at the forefront of evolving technology within the space.

The first stop for the BGA team is Dcentral, a web3 conference best known for its signature event in Miami, which sees thousands of attendees and projects come together for an informative event with cutting-edge panel discussions and networking.

Our event manager, Maude Perrin, and BGA board member Christina Macedo from Ready.gg will open the gaming track on Wednesday, 20 September, with a keynote presentation about the Blockchain Game Alliance and how we can support projects within the ecosystem.

The same evening, we will join BGA partners Pacific Meta for their Tokyo side event, alongside Coinmuse and Oasys, to kick off Tokyo Game Show. You can find more about their project in the latest magazine.
