Today we’re super excited to announce the dates and locations for Roblox Developers Conference 2017, the ultimate gathering of the most prolific creators in the community. This year is going to be bigger, better, and Blox-ier than ever before, with TWO conferences happening back-to-back in both the United States and the United Kingdom (yes, we’re headed overseas!).
We’re pulling out all the stops this year to treat developers to a jam-packed weekend filled with tons of surprises and in-depth discussions about all things Roblox. As a special thank you—and to help make your travel plans worry-free—we’re providing all attendees with catered food, snacks, and beverages for free AND offering discounted hotel rates in San Jose, CA and London, UK. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the future of the Imagination Platform with the rest of the developer community.
Here’s some of the preliminary details about each event:

How to register
Since its inception, RDC has played a critical role in helping us connect with the developer community on a more personal level. We’re looking to invite even MORE creators this year, but space is limited AND it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis. The first round of invites will be going out to developers within the next few weeks. As space becomes available, we’ll provide an application to request an invitation on the DevForum.
We can’t wait to catch up with some familiar faces, as well as meet some of the newest up-and-coming developers at RDC this year. If you’ve never been to RDC before, now’s your chance to catch all the exciting announcements and technology demonstrations and chat with Roblox staff members and fellow creators.
We’ll be sharing more information about #RDC2017 in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned to the blog, our social media channels, and the DevForum for all the details. Get ready for an epic weekend. We can’t wait to see you at RDC!
