Don’t take our word for it here’s what the companies have had to say:
“Excellent event for small to large development companies to source new talent for their teams. We were incredibly surprised at the diversity of skill sets we found at the event, from programmers, artists and producers to community, marketing and business development.”
“We use this event to help recruit graduates. It’s part of our annual recruitment process. Even if we don’t recruit people directly from the event, people who go talk to their friends, and so it has a general impact in terms of raising awareness. Please continue!”
“I can’t give out enough praise for the event. I’ve made some great connections that I believe will prove useful going forward. Some of the insight I picked up was unbelievable!”
“I genuinely couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to take part.”
