EGPA21 Panels

At the core of the Everyone Games PA is education. With the help of our sponsors we have assembled as many angles of the gaming industry as possible for you to meet and ask questions.  Below you will find a list of our panelists and what they plan on discussing with you.

All discussions will be held in the Everyone Games Discord .  When you enter the discord for your selected panel, we ask that you kindly mute yourself and type any questions in the assigned chats.
