NEXT Exhibit is a Working Lunch initiative I created with Liam Esler in 2018 to showcase games made by underrepresented people at PAX Aus. I’m incredibly proud to see NEXT be successful in our mission year on year to bring new conversations and experiences to a massive consumer gaming expo!
NEXT is a mammoth effort for me, coordinating sponsorships, tech, skilling up an expo team, working with consultants to design accessible booth spaces, designing the branding and curating the lineup of great games. Everyone who works on NEXT is paid.
In 2019, we introduced a series of talks and Q&A sessions at the exhibit which were a massive hit!
