Three ways to explore the Expo
Expo Booths: A vibrant collection of virtual booths will provide a huge range of opportunities to meet directly with studios and businesses keen to showcase their companies. The booths enable all kinds of interactions – from drop-ins to portfolio and CV reviews and talks, with a strong focus on communication of company values and ambitions.
Sessions: We are convinced that working in games and esports should provide women with not just a job, but a lasting, fulfilling career. To demonstrate the variety and richness of the possibilities that the sectors offer, we will host sessions with specialists in their fields, from programmers to artists, UX designers to community managers, sharing their stories and insights into their specialisms. We will also present winners of the 2021 Women in Games Awards, whose stories will provide inspiring examples of the achievements of women working in the sector.
Networking: We will be hosting the Careers Expo on the intuitive, highly interactive platform Hopin, enabling us to focus on making the world of work in games and esports as accessible as possible. Hopin offers dedicated networking spaces: You can search the event for those you might know who are attending; you can explore the networking roulette space, and meet new contacts; and even arrange one to one meetings. The sessions and event-wide chat provide opportunities for sharing views, making connections and exchanging knowledge and resources.
The Careers Expo will open doors, create connections, explore career pathways, and offer opportunities for innovation and dialogue.If you would like more information about hosting an Expo Booth during the Careers & Networking Expo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, using the subject line ‘Careers Expo Booth’.
