There would be more fun in the award ceremony with music, drinks and dinner.
Usually, we hear someone saying two birds in one shot. But here in London, it’s three conferences on one ticket. On the same dates, at the same venue, PGC is organizing two other events, XR Connects and PC Connects to celebrate Cross Reality enabled games and PC games. XRC is a global VR, AR and MR industry conference that will feature five mainstream events XR Super Star, XR Trends, AR Insights, XR Tech Talks and XR Showcase with more than 500 delegates. PC Connects is a global PC games industry conference that will feature four mainstream events namely State of Play, Digital Discovery, PC Games Univeristy, and Making Of, each focusing on new trends in the industry and solutions to current challenges.
For game enthusiasts like you, the platform does not matter, but the people you meet, knowledge you share, and the playful moments you relish will do. And PG Connects London can make a better platform to offer all that matters to you.
