G3 Futures Annual Conference 2017

When: 05/07/2017 at 17:30 Where: University of Surrey: 5G Centre

G3 is ready to welcome you at our 3rd annual summer event. This year we focus on what is happening in Guildford and around the region as we develop the talent, infrastructure and technology of the future. This is a chance to hear about what others have been up to and to find out what YOU can do to help Guildford retain its status as the ‘Hollywood of the games industry’. As always, it’s a great chance to network with drinks and a barbecue. The event is free to all members of the local games and related industries.

When: Wednesday 5th July 17:30 – 21:00 (Registration from 17:00)

Where: University of Surrey 5G Innovation Centre
