Meetups are typically held every few months.
Everyone 19+ is welcome to our events as long as they RSVP, even if you are not a streamer.
Early access is a benefit of being a GameWisp subscriber (certain tiers - please see descriptions). Please note that you must have an active subscription as of 11:59pm PT the night before the meetup to get these benefits.
Please bring 2 pieces of ID, as our meetups are 19+. Bring cash, credit, or debit for food and drinks and to buy raffle tickets. Don't forget your phones and cameras for taking pictures. If you have business cards, bring those too. If you're a dev, bring everything you need to demo your game (space is first-come, first-served unless you are a featured demo).
Unfortunately, we can not guarantee the venue will be 100% wheelchair-accessible at all times, but we can do our best to accommodate. Please note that any limitations we face are based on venue availability that is affordable (usually without rental fee) and can accommodate our attendee size and activations. However, we are always open to venue suggestions and referrals.
With upwards of hundreds of people in an enclosed space, our meetups will get quite loud. Please be prepared for that so you can have the best experience possible!
Every attendee needs to RSVP individually. Everyone else is treated as a walk-in admitted an hour after doors open (space permitting).
Anyone who has not RSVPed will be given access to the event an hour after doors open (space permitting). There may also be perks/swag given to RSVP guests that walk-ins do not get.
Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event at the raffle table. Prices may vary per event. Prizes will be announced on Twitter. If you'd like to sponsor a prize, please see our Sponsorship Deck. There may be other ways to enter giveaways, depending on the event (e.g. taking pictures at the photo booth or tweeting at us).
We aim to have all sponsors in place 2-3 weeks before meetups, but will make exceptions if turnaround times for assets and materials are quick. Please ensure all physical and digital promotional materials are delivered with ample time to work into the event (typically 2 weeks ahead of the meetup).
Please have a look at our Sponsorship Deck for a description of benefits per tier.
We don't have a set limit of people who can attend per sponsorship, but we ask that you keep in mind that our priority is to allow as many regular guests to attend as possible. Please also let us know exactly who will be attending for your business and provide their names so we can keep our guest list up to date.
We welcome all devs to bring their game demos to our meetups. Space is first-come, first-served, so we recommend that you queue early (unless you've purchased early access). Please note that we are not responsible for any damages done to your equipment at our meetups.
Please bring everything you need to demo your game, including laptop, peripherals, monitors, and battery backups. Note that long power cables may become a hazard at such a busy venue, so we strongly advise using wireless/battery solutions. We can try to assist with some hardware if available, but please give advance notice. We also recommend you bring business cards or pamphlets and a sign-up sheet for guests to provide their email addresses for future follow-up. If you are a featured demo, please also bring a long HDMI cable to connect to the TV or projector.
Please fill out this form to apply to be a featured game demo at the next meetup. Featured game demos receive early setup access, a reserved flat screen TV or projector screen, social media promotion, and trailer rotation at the venue.
