WHAT IS GPS2021?

The conference exists so that we can collectively share and celebrate our efforts and the stuff we create—seriously, the world would be a much worse place without it.

But more importantly, GPS2021 exists as a platform to inspire each other. The event may be the largest coming together of creative minds in the Southeast. And when we share our vision, our thoughts, and our ideas, the end result is always even better ideas.

Over two days, our goal is to expose you to sharpest minds in the world of content creation. We want you to listen to their stories, be inspired, and even takeaway skills that you can apply in your own work.

AGENDA

GPS2021 will be an immersive and invaluable experience taking place over two action-packed days.

Each day will be made up of engaging keynote presentations and panels from some of the brightest minds in film, music and gaming.

This year’s virtual format lets us change things up a bit. Register early to access most speaking events. Purchase your ticket to attend all the exclusive sessions, one-on-ones, and interactive sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the event?

The event is two days long (January 15th and 16th ), and the speaking sessions will run from about 9am to 6pm EST. And all the entertainment will run between 6pm to 8pm EST.

Can I choose which sessions to attend?

Absolutely. We’ll send you an email that lets you add sessions to your personal calendar. So you can attend the ones you want. Or better yet, join us for the whole thing!

What if I get a ticket and can't make it?

We expect this year’s virtual event to be larger than the in-person version. And while we are going to try to accommodate everyone who wants to attend, the bandwidth does get expensive. So if you can’t attend, please pass your ticket on to someone who can, or notify us and we’ll make it available via our ticketing platform.

Will you sell out?

Believe it or not, yes! While we’re not limited by venue size, we are limited by bandwidth—which can get pricey quickly. So there will be a cap on the number of attendees.

Don't see your question here?

No problem. Either send us an email at questions@creatrconf.com or reach out to us on Twitter at @creatrconf and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
