    Venue could have been bigger for sure, c'est la vie. For those that I was talking to, here is the link to the CCV Summer games: . Contact me at [masked] and you and your company will get in at a special. Thanks for all the hospitality, ATA and co!

    Venue is too small. Nothing against EXP but it can't support the volume of job seekers looking for the necessary face time with companies. Please look into a larger venue or extend the duration of the event by at least another hour. Thanks for your efforts!

Until next time. Rock on.

    Was definitely worth going to, however the venue versus people was far too disparate! There wasn't much of an opportunity to talk to each of the studio representatives due to the volume of people the organizers wanted to keep moving. Either more time or a bigger venue (or both) would greatly enhance the experience!

      Thanks for the feedback, Michael. Working with EXP Bar has been such a great experience. The event clearly has grown since the last year. We are exploring options on improving the venue vs. people situation. Again, thanks for attending :)

    A Fantastic event. Thank you Cynthia, Emiko, and Chloe (Fathom Interactive, DeNa and ATA) for being super nice and welcoming. Overall, really nice people and lots of industry-related tips and info. Standing in line was not a problem since it was really entertaining talking to programmers and developers and learning about back end development.

    Had a blast! All of the companies and crew were amazing and just gave me a new cool insight on how the industry works! LOVE the sense of Community! And that is what I believe helps nurture and generate a strong and succesful industry. Thanks to Tayber and Sue that were incredibly helpful.

    Hey Folks!

    Just wanted to invite everyone here to attend an event I'm hosting where some local game studios & indies will be showing off their latest projects. It's a party to celebrate the great work that gets done in this city, but it's also a great opportunity to network while having some fun checking out awesome projects!

    Hope to see a bunch of you there, best of luck with the hiring / job-getting!

    P.S. If any of the companies participating in Hiring Happy Hour have a project they'd like to show off and aren't currently on our list, please send my partner Neil an email directly as we still have a couple spots left.
