This meetup group was established to socialize and network with professionals/enthusiasts in the games industry around San Diego. It'll be a great way for those interested in the fields to share their work and give feedback. It's open to 2D/3D artists, programmers, concept artists, compositors, editors, game testers, composers, etc.
Enjoy Hollywood's best CGI industry conference event of the year for free if you DM me! If you love computer graphics, animation and visual effects this is the event you don't want to miss. This includes the game industry! It is a who's who of the industry and its service/software providers. If you DM me I've got multiple coupon codes for free expo only passes.
Sunday there's Birds of a Feather meetings all day where you can meetup with people of common interests. They usually don't check badges for these but if you want to be safe an expo only pass will get you in. Tuesday through Thursday is the expo. The normal expo only pass is $50. The rest of the conference has varying prices.
Expo hours: Tue, 30 July, 9:30 am-6 pm - Wed, 31 July, 9:30 am-6 pm - Thu, 1 August, 9:30 am-3:30 pm

I cannot stress how prominent the game industry is now involved in this event. So are the AR/VR and motion capture industries.
