panels and speakers

Got something to say to the larger Game Dev community? Want to share some great stories or experiences? 1UpState will feature “Micro-Talks” for our panels and discussions, meaning each time slot will be 30min instead of the standard full hour. This will allow us to fit more topics into a single event and keep the conversations moving! If you’ve got something to say, fill out our Panel Application and be a part of the Expo!


While we would love to have every gaming-centric entity be an exhibitor at 1UpState, the laws of physics prevent us from doing so. But there’s still a way for you to get your name out there to the Game Dev cluster and gaming community of the Tech Valley Region: Become a sponsor! We have several packages available, and of course we are open to custom packages as well; review our sponsorship deck for details, and apply using the button below.


There is so much going on in NY’s Tech Valley Region, it is no wonder people want to talk about it! We are home to such a vibrant creative and technical talent pool, it is no wonder that game development has taken root in our local communities. If you would like to help us spread the word, fill out our Media Pass Application and someone from the 1UpState staff will get back to you.
