Roblox held its Roblox Innovation Awards 2022 event in San Francisco today, complete with an in-person gala event in Fort Mason.
In a post, Matt Curtis, vice president of developer relations, said the community of creators is building art, music, fashion and entire worlds that captivate and inspire millions of people every day.
“For years we’ve recognized that passion with an annual virtual awards show, but as their achievements grow, so does the need to recognize them,” Curtis said. “That’s why this year – and for the first time ever – we held an in-person and virtual gala at the Roblox Developers Conference in Fort Mason, San Francisco, California: The Roblox Innovation Awards.”
At the biggest RDC to date – and in between awards with guest hosts such as Karlie Kloss, MeganPlays and MiniToon – the company made announcements about the future of the platform and conducted interviews with creators.
