This year the Capital Gaming Expo has a new owner, Jillian Mood & Partners, and with that comes some exciting changes. CGX is throwing the spotlight on Video Games. You can still expect to see traditional gaming that CGX has featured in the past such as boardgames, etc.

CGX brings a similar vision that PAX has to Ottawa by including gamers, startups, indies, and AAA studios from all over Canada together in one giant celebration of games. There will be an expo floor dedicated to games and tech, organized by Jared Thomson from Snowed In Studios, as well as conference talks by industry leaders focusing on entrepreneurial success, positive leadership, industry creative and technical directors. The expo floor will also include an incredible display of industry art.

Studios and speakers are coming from all over Canada, including Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and more! Speaking games from studios such as Execution Labs, XMG, Microsoft, Unity, Karman Interactive, Ludia, Ubisoft, East Side Games, and so much more!

Check out our list of confirmed speakers so far, more to come!
