Whilst there’s no UK pavilion at GDC this year there will be a raft of targeted opportunities for UK companies to gain exposure and meet potential partners.
With 45 companies registered, this DIT trade mission (supported by Ukie) includes the use of Werqwise, a co-working space close to the Moscone centre, as well as curated meeting opportunities with leading platforms, technology providers and games companies.
“CGHero is going to be at GDC in a big way, so we’re thrilled to be partnering with Ukie as headline sponsor of the UK Industry Drinks Reception at GDC 2023,” said CGHero Founder and CEO Jonathan Lloyd. “We’re excited to bring our co-creation platform to GDC and talk more to the industry about all we can do to support your future game development projects with our modern, streamlined outsourcing platform.”
Ukie is also organising three additional events on top of the trade mission:
Wednesday 22nd March – Investment dinner
Taking place from 7pm at a restaurant close to Moscone, this private dinner brings 20-25 up and coming UK studios and a matching number of investors (publishers, platforms, funds etc) together in an informal and friendly setting for networking and potential collaboration.
