Irish Game Technology companies converge on GDC

March 7th 2007 San Francisco

Some of the leading players in the games industry from Ireland have come together at GDC for the first time. Backed by the government agency, Enterprise Ireland, Selatra, Nephin Games and DemonWare will be in attendance individually and as a social grouping, spearheading the emerging games technology cluster in Ireland.

"While we have supported the individual comapnies in the past, this is the first time that we have decided to support and bring these companies together in full force at GDC, the premier conference for building new relationships in the games sector, Across the spectrum from mobile content creation to online networking middleware, these world class companies are at the forefront of games development in Ireland." said Maggie Daleo of Enterprise Ireland.

At the end of the expo on Wednesday and Thursday evening, look out for the Irish party trolley outside Moscone West.
