Students, their parents, and prospective career changers can discover how to forge a career in one of the UK’s fastest growing industries, when the Leamington Spa video games hub opens its doors next month.
‘Interactive Futures – Gateway into Games’ is a free one-day event taking place on Saturday 13 May at the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington Spa. The day will be dedicated to inspiring the next generation to take a closer look at the multiple career opportunities and pathways the video games sector has to offer, with representatives from the ‘Silicon Spa’ cluster of studios including Lab42, Lively – a Keyword Studio, SEGA HARDlight, Sumo Leamington, Third Kind Games and Ubisoft Leamington all taking part.
This event is a one day special, dedicated to inspiring the next generation of talent into the video game industry and building on the larger scale Interactive Futures showcase event held in Warwickshire since the inaugural event in 2019. It builds on the area’s reputation as being home to one of the largest video game development clusters outside of London with around 3,000 people employed locally in the sector.
Interactive Futures is being organised by Warwickshire County Council and Warwick District Council in partnership with local games studios and is entirely free to attend.
