Live 2024

Now at Universal Orlando Resort!

The GCX Live Event has transcended into a global celebration, evolving from a singular gaming community gathering to a creator-focused extravaganza.

It’s where our community unites to mingle with beloved creators, reconnect with old friends, forge new friendships, and honor the incredible work supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Since 2019, we’ve proudly partnered with Rosen Shingle Creek to curate the vacation-focused gaming experience in Orlando. However, unforeseen circumstances have led us to embark on an exciting new journey.

Join Us for an Unforgettable Experience
As We Move GCX 2024 to the One and Only
Universal Orlando Resort

Building on our successful After Party at Universal Orlando Resort, we’re thrilled to announce a monumental shift! GCX 2024 will proceed as planned, but with an incredible plot twist: we’re relocating our entire event to Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Florida Soundstages!

Universal Studios Florida features several soundstages that are integral to its functioning as a real working motion picture and television studio. These soundstages are not just for show; they are actively used for filming various productions. And now, we’re creating a first of its kind experience as we set the GCX stage between two incredible theme parks.

Here’s What That Means for You

We know several of our community members have already booked rooms at the Rosen Shingle Creek, and we have ensured that this move will be as simple as possible for you! Attendees who have already booked reservations through the GCX Room Block will have their bookings canceled automatically, at no cost to them!

Not sure if you booked under the GCX Room Block?

Check your email! Every person who reserved room nights under the GCX Room Block at Rosen Shingle Creek has received an email from our team at GCX. It contains all of the details you need to know about your rooms being canceled for you, and rebooking at a lower rate with Universal Orlando Resort.

The Team at Rosen Shingle Creek is going to begin canceling all of the rooms, at no cost to attendees, on Monday, June 24, 2024. It will take them 3 – 5 business days. Once the reservations are canceled, you will receive an email confirmation confirming that their reservation has been canceled.

Room Blocks Are Open!

When you stay at one of Universal Orlando Resort’s hotels, it’s hard to tell where relaxation ends, and exhilaration begins. That’s because you’re close to the parks. And when you’re in the parks, you’re close to your hotel! That means you can take the day your way, without the hustle and hassle of planning everything down to the minute. So, you can do what you want – when you want. This is how you do Universal Orlando.

Each hotel has on-site easy transportation to Universal CityWalk and then to the Universal Studios Florida Soundstages where GCX 2024 is going to be held.

Wherever you are, the vacation keeps going.
