WHAT IS NORTHERN EXPOSURE?
A meeting of games industry minds on the banks of the Tyne.
The event goes back to the roots of the region’s famous GameHorizon Conference by bringing together speakers from the North East games scene with guests from the wider games industry.
This one day event features talks from business owners, industry leaders, professionals and experts, to share stories of success and challenge. Hear expert tips and nuggets of knowledge to inspire your own business and games.
There are plenty of opportunities to network throughout the day, followed by a drinks party in the evening.
The first Northern Exposure of 2019 will take place on Wednesday 27th February at the Northern Design Centre, Gateshead, UK.
Topics include everything from running a business, publishing and marketing to art, technology and design
