Scottish Development International is the enterprise organisation which is responsible for overseas business and inward investment. This is the organisation which is responsible for Scotland’s participation in overseas conferences, expos and trade shows.
SDI has supported the games industry a great deal over the last 10+ years and Scotland has a presence at many of the major trade shows around the world. Now the organisation is planning it’s 2013 events and is looking for participants and companies interested in attending and exhibiting.
First up is the Game Developer Conference. GDC has become the global event for development studios and game creators, offering the opportunity to meet potential partners, network and actually do business.
Scotland has had a major presence at GDC for a number of years now and takes 10+ companies out to San Francisco each year.
Now your company, studio or team can (probably) get involved and get out to one of the world’s most useful, fascinating and developer-heavy events.
You can qualify for up to £500 towards the cost of a conference pass/travel/accommodation, inclusion on the SDI stand, free PR support and the chance to be there in a more meaningful way than you, on your own, standing, alone and startled in a herd of 2000+ swarming developers in free t-shirts.
You need to register your interest in attending GDC by Friday this week (09/11/12). You can do this by e-mailing Mandy Cooper at SDI.
It’s worth doing. You’re not signing up for anything, or agreeing to anything, you’re telling them you’re interested. Go on, e-mail him and tell him you’re not only interested but fascinated, excited and full of wonder…
