From December 6 to 8, WGE 2017 will attract gaming industry professionals from across the world to showcase new products and services, as well as offering several networking opportunities over the three days.
Two hundred of the sector’s leading companies and many professional service providers will be exhibiting, including software developers and financial advisers.
