Last week we had a great opportunity to attend the annual LAUNCH Future Gaming & Digital Conference held in Birmingham and organised by Innovation Birmingham. The conference was open to everyone interested in games – students, graduates, start-ups, independent developers, entrepreneurs and those just thinking about a career in games. Being the biggest and most attended conference in the Midlands, UK, we felt we couldn’t miss the opportunity to meet other developers based in our area and learn more about local successes and challenges.
The highlight of LAUNCH has to be the talks/lectures/presentations given by notable industry figures including the likes of Grant Orban at Playground Games, Ian Harrison at Gamer Camp, and a mixture of indie showcases that were fun and interesting. Overall, providing valuable information for anyone involved in our industry!
The first day of LAUNCH Conf concluded with a networking event and a free drinks reception at Nuvo Bar! A well thought-through chance for attendees to get to know each other, catch up or just have a well deserved break.. 🙂 We’re already looking forward to attending LAUNCH next year!
