In addition to the marquee panel, ‘Game Night’ will feature the cutting edge game-based technologies that are being developed by North Carolina-based companies. Several companies will demo their products following the panel session. Confirmed demos include NCSU, 3Dsolve, Emergent Game Technologies and Do2Learn.
“CED’s ‘Game Night’ will not only give participants the chance to learn more about the gaming industry and its potential, but also the opportunity to see first hand the unique and innovative gaming technologies that are being developed here in North Carolina,” said CED President Monica Doss.
