Two testimonials from last year's event

“Having access to the SDI booth proved invaluable when it came to meeting prospective partners. The space itself was striking and professional, with all the required utilities available.”

“Attending GDC allowed us to make contact with a number of games studios from around the world that were on our target list. Being listed as an active exhibitor as part of the Scotland stand helped establish our credibility and set up meetings.”
