Play by Play Conference

Apr 26 - 27, 2019

Soundings Theatre, Te Papa, Wellington

Play by Play is a New Zealand games conference with a difference.

Run mid-April each year in the beating cultural heart of the country, Wellington, Play by Play is a New Zealand games conference with a difference. Since our inception in 2016, we’ve grown exponentially, proving that there’s a vibrant community of gamers, enthusiasts and curious folk in the play sphere.

Our humble conference began life as a city-wide festival celebrating everything to do with games and play. Since our 2019 event, Play by Play has broken away from the festival as an entity, now sitting under the umbrella of the NZ Games Festival.

In 2019, Play by Play will run for two whole days. Across these days, there will be a diverse slate of talks and exciting opportunities to network with other ANZ game developers.

This year’s keynote speaker, Nick Suttner, comes all the way from San Francisco. Having worked in developer relations at Playstation and Oculus, and now working as a freelance writer, designer and consultant, Nick brings a depth of unique industry experience to our windy city.
