State of Play – Irish Games Conference and Festival #SOP21
Technological University Dublin – State of Play 2021 – Thursday 10rd June – online from 1pm
The State of Play is an annual games conference and festival hosted by the School of Media in the Technological University Dublin.
This year, we have a exciting and diverse list of speakers representing game start-ups, studios, content creators and technology providers. With the advent of the planned new government tax credit for Irish gaming, the sector is poised for accelerated investment and rapid growth over the next few years. To discuss this and other topics, we are delighted to have both local and international speakers covering areas such as retro gaming, game design, game tech, publishing and career advice.
So if you are interested in hearing about game development trends, insights and lots more, please join us as SOP 2021.
