Greetings from BLOXcon Chicago! It’s been a huge day for the ROBLOX staff — whether we were manning booths, running contests, giving keynote presentations on stage or running the Hackathon. Now, as the event slowly draws to an end, we wanted to share some photos we took throughout the day. And don’t worry, there’s a lot more to come. We made some very exciting announcements and showed off some awesome new features coming down the pipeline. We also documented the entire event on video with three (!!!) separate devices, so we’ll have plenty of footage to show you in the coming days and at the Virtual BLOXcon this September.
For now, enjoy this photo gallery of pictures. And thanks to the wonderful people of Chicago — your ideas, feedback, and overall positive enthusiasm really brought this event to life, and inspired us to keep doing it. London, bring it on!
