Thinking Digital Conference Videos

My annual trek to the North East for Thinking Digital is always a treat. Organised by Herb Kim, recently named #83 in the MediaGuardian Top 100 and his team at Codeworks, the event promises much and delivers.

The event takes place in the futuristic surroundings of Newcastle's re-developed quayside using the photogenic Sage and Baltic venues and features a wide range of speakers from tech-heavy to the unexpected.

The videos from this year's event have just been published on their website. My favourites...

GameHorizon 2010 Review

GameHorizon by Sarbjit Bakhshi

Phew! What an event! I had intended to live blog through the show, but with all the interesting panel sessions, excellent networking opportunities and after conference activities there was simply no time to put anything up during the conference.

The two days’ conference was an amazing opportunity for networking with senior executives from the Games industry. I have been to other major industry events all around the world, but none other has had industry stars attending and networking in such an open way (perhaps this is due to being held in the Newcastle - the friendliest place in the world?).

This is certainly an event to attend next year and with GameHorizon recently announcing that they are open up their services to all UK companies (not just those based in the North East) other companies should make a beeline for advanced registration.
