Brisbane Gaming Society




Formed in 2016 by a group of Brisbane based gamers with lofty  ambitions and seemingly too much time on our hands; the BGS began with  the concept of bringing back BrisCon.

BrisCon was once a stand out event in the gaming calendar and following a trip to Cancon we decided that if not us then who?

What we stand for



BGS is an Incorporated Association in Queensland comprised of an  executive and committee. We are an organisation that is not for profit  and committed to reinvestment to support our strategic aims.
