Blender Conference 2023 Recap

Blender Conference was again a memorable gathering of the Blender community, and it keeps getting better! With a similar number of attendees and the same location as last year, we could fine-tune some organizational aspects and make the event smoother.

You can enjoy all the recorded presentations on the YouTube channel, and on Blender’s PeerTube.

Feedback for the event was overall positive, with improvements compared to last year.


The event was made possible thanks to the contribution of many people and made memorable thanks to all attendees and speakers. Thank you!
