The con started off with 4 video rooms showing anime, a pub quiz, masquerade, karaoke, artist alley, dealer’s room and a games room but eventually developed to be more events focused where we kept padding out our schedule with a huge range of panels, workshops, games, competitions and highlight events through the efforts of our wonderful volunteers


Name: Button Festival of Gaming Culture
Date: March 11-12
Location: Seifenfabrik-Graz, Austria
Events: The button project, that is lived, digital game culture.And that means diversity . Gaming is creative, it's social, it can be cozy, but also highly competitive. It offers opportunities to dive into fascinating worlds, which are limited only by the imagination of game developers and developers borders. And all that brings people together. For small events or big ones like the annual button festival in the soap factory in Graz.
The button festival, that's - as the name suggests - not a fair, but a party for players.
It's all about what makes digital games so intriguing to gamers. It's about game history, e-sports, game development and, of course, the future of gaming. But first and foremost it is about the players themselves.
Without the crowd and the never-ending queues, fans of the medium come together at the button festival to exchange ideas and play together; no matter if you are collecting games, developing, exploring or just gambling passionately.
At the button festival, the soap factory becomes a large living room in which people play, chat, eat and discuss together. Here, the history of video games is actually playable, from Pong to League of Legends and the Commodore 64 to Oculus Rift . Here you can prove your skills in tournaments, you can upgrade your retro game collection and you can chat with game developers about their work. All this and more is the button festival.
