Polygons #5 – 20 February, 6.30pm, Friar Gate Studios, Derby

Never Mind the Polygons #5 will take place in just under three weeks time, at 6.30p.m. on Tuesday the 20th of February. More beered up, games industry panel ranting for your delight, open to everyone involved with the games industry.

Due to the popularity of the last few events, we’ve moved to a swankier venue at Friar Gate Studios, a little closer to the centre of Derby than the Courtyard Pub (Just up the road, in fact: Google map). A free bar has been kindly sponsored by Strawdog Studios.

Polygons #5 will feature Rob Yescombe (Screenwriter, Free Radical Design) and Matt Sansam (Ex-Rebellion Derby and now Founder, Covert Media), along with our two regulars Dan Marchant (Consultant and EM Media) and Iain Simons (Writer and Creative Director, GameCity Festival).

Doors open at the usual time of 6.30, with the event starting proper at 7.00 and wrapping up around 8.30, with plenty of time for drinks and networking after.

This event is part of the Creative Industries Network family.

More about CIN

CIN was formed in 2001 by a group of creative professionals who recognised the lack of networking of opportunities for like minded creative individuals. A series of evening events were established where creatives could get together to share ideas, have a beer and learn from each other. Since these humble beginnings CIN has grown into a fully fledged networking organisation with regular events, a full time network co-ordinator and this web-site, a fully developed information portal and online database of our creative members. CIN is now embedded in the creative sector in Derbyshire, with close links to local government and support organisations. It’s our philosophy to encourage growth through collaboration and to provide a forum and collective voice for the industry.

Our purpose is to help develop opportunities for you, our members, and to provide you with the support you need to grow your business.
