Many of you will know that the Inspirefest conference is coming up in early July. The main conference runs from July 6th & 7th in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin’s Silicon Docks.

We like their focus on diversity and inclusion which is in line with the ethos of gamedevelopers.ie and of our Network in Play project.

We have two student tickets worth €95 euros each to give away in advance to this important networking and knowledge sharing event.  Tickets give entrance to the full conference progamme and to Fringe festival July 6th – 8th, with live music, spoken word, international theatre premieres, art exhibitions, coding workshops and much more.

*We also ask that you write a 350 word blog post after the conference about your experience which we will post on gamedevelopers.ie after the event
