In collaboration with XP Gaming, La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec is thrilled to be the driving force behind this remarkable gaming rendezvous. The 2023 edition of MIGS aims to bolster Quebec and Canada's video game industry by offering a platform for global networking, featuring world-class speakers, and providing a dedicated B2B exhibit space.

La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec: This non-profit cooperative brings together independent and international video game developers, creators, educational institutions, and entrepreneurs in Quebec. They're the brilliant minds behind organizing the MIGS event, an annual extravaganza that serves as the flagship event for the gaming industry in the region. La Guilde is a powerhouse in the video game industry, boasting over 300 members and holding the world's most significant association title.

XP Gaming: This is not their first rodeo for gaming events. XP Gaming previously hosted the XP Game Developer Summit in Toronto, a massive success that drew in more than 750 attendees.
