San Francisco, CA – February 26, 2014 – Unity Technologies is happy to announce that Unite 2014, its eighth annual developer conference, will be held from August 20-22, 2014 at the Marion Oliver McCaw Hall at Seattle Center in Seattle, Washington, home of one of the world’s largest game and technology development communities. After incredible success in 2013, Unity Technologies is also pleased to announce the continued growth of its Unite and Unite Bootcamp program of events to include stops in China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, and Brazil with additional events to be announced later in 2014.
Unite 2014 is an event for developers, publishers, enthusiasts and others interested in Unity to come together to learn more about the market-leading platform for creating high quality video games, training simulations, medical and architectural visualizations and other 2D and 3D interactive content -- and how to get the most out of it. The conference offers three days of learning including advanced hands-on class tutorials, technical sessions, previews of upcoming technology as well as the chance to network in a creative and energetic environment.
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. The conference will take place in the heart of the city at the Seattle Center, home to the iconic Space Needle, which is situated with quick access by foot, taxi, or public transit to many of the city’s hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
Sessions, speakers, sponsors, awards, and party information will be released at a later date.
