GCAP 2023: Empower

GCAP 2023 Empower


The focus for GCAP 2023 is ‘Empower’.

In recent years, Australia has consistently impressed global audiences with critically acclaimed game titles and world-class developers. As Australian game developers build on this momentum, the future is expected to present many exciting and new prospects.  GCAP 2023 aims to empower developers to achieve their visions for not only themselves, but also their teams, art and technical abilities.

Games Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP) is Australia’s premier professional development and networking event for the game development industry, focused on up-skilling and connecting the Australian sector via education, knowledge sharing and the provision of extended personal and business networks. GCAP caters to a range of disciplines and has grown and attracted an engaged audience and esteemed speakers from around the world.
