Catch all the highlights and talks from the Ukie Hub Crawl
What was the hub crawl?
The Hub Crawl 2018 was a series of free events, located all around the UK, that brought games businesses together to hear and share the latest thinking on business growth. Each event featured a series of short, informative sessions from industry experts in key areas such as finance, marketing and technology and these were followed by a games panel featuring companies from the local area. The content was different at each event.
At Moov2 and Ukie's recent event, Rocket Jump in Guildford, Phil Elliott from Square Enix Collective gave a talk about pitching your game to publishers.
