This year’s conference to be held in a ‘vibrant city of tech giants and development luminaries’

Unity has announced that Unite 2014, its eighth annual developer conference, will be held in Seattle.

Seattle is one of the largest game and technology development communities in the world, home to the likes of Microsoft and Nintendo of America.

Unite 2014 will take place from August 20th to 22nd, 2014 at the Marion Oliver McCaw Hall at Seattle Center in Seattle, Washington.

Unite will once again allow developers, publishers and enthusiasts to come together to learn more about the game engine and how to get the most out of it.

The three-day conference offers advanced hands-on class tutorials, technical sessions, previews of upcoming technology as well as the chance to network.

“2014 sees Unite change settings to another of North America’s game development hubs, Seattle, Washington. A vibrant city full of tech giants and development luminaries, Seattle offers an inspiring setting for developers of all backgrounds,” reads Unity’s announcement.

This year’s event will also be preceded by a separate Unity Training Day for beginners the day before Unite starts.

Sessions, speakers and party information will be announced at a later date.

Last year’s event was held in Vancouver and attend by some 1300 people. The first ever Unite conference took place in 2007 in San Francisco and was attended by 70 people attended. It was held there twice more in 2009 and 2011.

Other locations that the conference has been held at include Copenhagen (2008), Montreal (2010) and Amsterdam (2012).
