GDC 2016 is fast approaching
It's only six weeks until the UK games industry start filling the flights to San Francisco for GDC, the biggest and most established games industry event in the world. Ukie is once again running the UK industry stand, taking out some of the biggest names in UK games to meet international counterparts to exchange ideas, network, attract funding, pitch to investors, and shape the future of industry.

Our Game Developers Conference 2015 Round Up
At this year's GDC we were excited to welcome over 35 British companies to the UK pavilion of the expo show floor, with 6 Northern Irish companies and 13 Welsh companies joining us as part of their trade missions. The business area was buzzing with meetings, and the outwards-facing demo area featured 6 games companies demoing their fantastic games. And, as per usual, the walls and panels were adorned with iconic union jack flags and bunting.

Thirty six businesses will be exhibiting on the UK industry stand at this year’s GDC in San Francisco, promoting the UK as the best place to make and sell games in the world.
