Launch Fest is followed immediately by the world-famous New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, so its a great opportunity to make a weekend of it in New Orleans following the conference.


New Orleans' game development community is growing everyday. To highlight this community, we're piggy backing on the annual Launch Fest event and presenting "Launch Fest Play". 

We want this conference to bring the city's amazing game development talent into the spotlight help connect the developers, artists, writers, musicians and actors to create the next great game.

REGISTER HERE FOR Launch Fest > Play

Launch Fest is proud to be part of the Sync Up Conference Series. In addition to Launch Fest, Now Fest includes Sync Up, a music industry conference over both Jazz Fest weekends.
