A Convention Like no other

100% PLAYABLE

Play NYC is New York’s premier dedicated game convention for creators and players alike. Featuring the latest releases from studios large and small, and from developers old and new, Play NYC celebrates every facet of gaming in a way that only the Big Apple can.

Launched in 2017, the first-ever Play NYC convention gathered over 5,000 people for two packed days and nights of games, speakers and networking events. In 2018, Play NYC is back and even bigger in our new home - The Manhattan Center - packing all 4 floors of the historic Hammerstein Ballroom with games of all shapes and sizes. Whether you're a hardcore gamer or just want to bring the family for a day of fun games, everyone will find something to love.

WHO WE ARE

ABOUT THE ORGANIZER

Playcrafting provides developers with the tools required to get their games off the ground. This is done through tailored educational events, dynamic networking opportunities, and classes to help crack the code to gaming success!

From design and programming to business and beyond, developers come to us in order to sharpen their skillsets and partner with companies that can help them succeed. Playcrafting grows game developer communities through over 100 industry events, 200 classes, and 50 courses across 5 major cities in the United States each year.
Play NYC would not be possible without our incredible founding committee that helped launch it in 2017.
