Eight Unite conferences will be held around the world throughout 2016 in Amsterdam, Melbourne, São Paulo, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Drawing from a monthly active user base of over 4 million registered developers, each Unite conference will give local developers access to Unity engineers, hands-on workshops showcasing games made with Unity, peer networking, and new and upcoming products and services. The series is open to all -- from students and indies to AAA studios -- and provides significant value to participants through a unique breadth and diversity of talks, topics and attendees.
"I love seeing the amazing things that developers from the biggest publishers to the smallest indies are making on the Unity platform," said John Riccitiello, CEO of Unity Technologies. "Each year our conference series grows and provides the perfect listening platform for us to make sure we're solving the hard problems game creators encounter. They also bring together developers to collaborate and to learn from each other, a key part of what makes our community stronger."
The Unite conference series culminates with Unite '16 Los Angeles -- Unity's flagship conference for 2016 -- on 1-3 November, held at the Loews Hollywood Hotel.
