Standard Pass

Includes Play by Play, Treat & Greet

Standard Pricing: $115

Our Standard Pass gives you access to our Play by Play Conference and our delicious networking event, Treat & Greet! This is a great ticket option if Awards Nights and workshops aren’t your thing.

Student Tickets

Includes Play by Play, Treat & Greet

Standard Pricing: $70

Industry events are a great opportunity for students to grow their real-world knowledge and network, but aren’t easy to get to on a student budget. That’s why we have a Student Ticket option available, which gives you access to both Play by Play and Treat & Greet.

Get in quick, because there are only 30 student tickets this year, and these bad boys sell out fast. You’ll need to bring your student ID with you on the day in order to collect your badge.

Fair Play Programme

Free access to Play by Play, Treat & Greet, The Pavs: NZ Game Awards, Developer Workshops


Inclusivity is one of Play by Play’s core values, which is why we’ve implemented the Fair Play programme. If you’re an under-resourced or under-represented developer and the ticket price is a barrier for entry to you, we encourage you to apply for Fair Play. Please don’t self-eliminate – all applications are welcome.

Recipients of the Fair Play program will receive a free All Access Pass to the event, courtesy of our wonderful sponsors. All available tickets for 2021 have been assigned, but you are welcome to apply for our waitlist if you can’t otherwise attend.
