This week (24-27 June) sees the Wales Millennium Centre welcome Digital Cardiff Week through its doors.
Digital Cardiff Week consists of four innovative events, showcasing the best talent from the digital and creative industries in Wales.
Led by a number of partners, including the BBC, Welsh Government, S4C, Cardiff Council and BAFTA Cymru, the events give the digital community in Wales the opportunity to network with leading companies on both a local and international scale.
Events such as Digital Futures, Skills and Economy Days will discuss the future of digital broadcasting with leaders in the media and technology divisions. A Technology Fair will also be running, with demonstrations from the BBC on the latest consumer technology for businesses.
Creative Skillset Cymru will also be running free taster training sessions for those in the creative media industries wanting to get more hands-on and learn about using social media effectively.
Wednesday (26 June) will see the Centre host the Wales Games Development Show 2013. The event will be looking to build upon the success of last year’s show, which attracted over 350 visitors and 30 exhibitors,
With a large networking area included, the show will be a platform for both games and interactive development companies across the digital media industry in Wales.
It will also play host to the BAFTA in Wales Games Awards ceremony, with supporting workshops and lectures from BAFTA in Wales running throughout the day
“The show is really important for raising the profile the games industry in Wales and a chance to showcase digital entertainment products that are made in Wales,” says David Banner, managing director of Wales Interactive, organisers of the show.
“The show this year is already attracting guests from outside of Wales and we actually did our press launch in UKIE offices in London to attract a wider audience.
“This has led to Develop, which is a well-established Games Industry magazine becoming our Media Partner which will ensure the show will have press coverage and be talked about all around the UK and the rest of Europe.”
The Wales Games Development Show is open to the public from 10am-8pm.
