The Roblox Innovation Awards 2023 was initially set to take place earlier this year. However, the event was delayed due to security concerns and was postponed to November 10, 2023. The show was hosted by Justin "JPARTY" Sousa, Roblox's Head of Global Developer Community, and Lauren "LuluSpookyPanda" Freeman, Head of Developer Advocacy.
