The Europe 2023 event continues our hybrid format – stream+Discord, with an additional in-person event alongside.


The talks are scheduled for UK timezones, spread over two short days to maximise time-zone crossover for Europe. They will be broadcast on Zoom, from 10am to 5.30pm BST each day (5am – 12.30pm ET, 11am – 6.30pm CET)

They are also simulcast to Youtube on the IGDA Game Accessibility SIG’s channel. Zoom offers the better viewing experience, with flexible captions and interpreting. The YouTube stream is primarily a re-windable backup for people who aren’t able to catch some of the sessions live.

Remote networking

Networking is via discord only (the chat functionality for Zoom and YouTube will not be enabled). The link to the Discord will be sent to registered attendees only, in your confirmation email.

In-person event

A two day gathering for face to face networking, at the Pullman St Pancras Hotel, London.  Some talks will be given in person, others will be streamed to the venue. Attendance includes lunches and an evening drinks reception on the first day.


See you there!


COVID safety remains a priority for us. Attendance at the in-person even is conditional to proof of vaccination AND proof a negative test, and attendance is strictly capped at 120 attendees.

But we are aware that no event can be fully COVID safe, and that a significant number of our regular attendees are still unable to attend physical events. So the balance between in-person and online has been designed to ensure that it is not weighted towards one or the other, the in-person event is essentially an extension of Discord.


While Zoom and Discord are not perfect, they offer a more accessible experience than their competitors. As part of this we’ll be using Zoom’s functionality to provide full live captioning and ASL interpreting for all talks, and our speakers are provided with guidance on producing accessible presentations.

The physical event is spread across multiple spaces, all on the ground floor, including quieter areas. Assistants attend for free but must register, please contact us for a 100% discount code to use for their registration.
