Play Festival of the game 2021: the conferences not to be missed

Play Festival of the game 2021

The 2021 edition of the Play Festival of the game is almost upon us and in view of the expected return of the Modenese gaming fair, which will take place in Modena from 3 to 5 September 2021, our preparatory articles continue to orient yourself at the fair. For 3 days, exhibitors and participants of the fair will have the opportunity to celebrate the game in all its aspects and to bring the playful spirit to life within the Modenese exhibition center and beyond. If the fair will be the main theater and the beating heart of Play, the Emilian city and its surroundings will also host some of the scheduled events.

Between conferences, Q&A sessions and auctions to win the missing piece of their collections, let's find out together which are the meetings not to be missed.

The program of Play Festival of the game will be varied and will have something for every fan, however some scheduled events will be truly unmissable and will each represent a particular moment of the fair. We have therefore decided to collect some suggestions in order to guide the participants of the fair through the busy program (which you can consult in full here), highlighting the meetings that impressed us the most.

To facilitate the consultation of contents each of the proposed games will be accompanied by an indication of the day and time, the place and a brief description. A single clarification on conferences and meetings in general: due to the containment measures of the pandemic, for almost all events it will be necessary to register to ensure participation.
