Games | Drinks | Scotland is a series of events hosted three times a year, each time held in each of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.

They came about from a conversation about the ridiculousness of most people in the Scottish games industry only meeting at overseas conferences, rather than catching up with each in their home cities.

Because they’ve turned into a great (the only!?) way for someone to come to Scotland and meet folk from literally every Scottish game dev studio in the course of a couple of days, past visitors that have come up especially have included: Sega, Apple, nVidia, Universal Music, Curve Digital, Fremantle Media, Merge Games, the BFI, the Oliver Twins, and Special Effect.

The format is nine speakers, each talking for strictly ten minutes, with networking breaks after every three speakers. Talk subjects can be very wide ranging; essentially anything that’s likely to be of interest to the majority of the audience. There must be no talk of recruiting or recruitment activity at the events though.

The events are free, and open to anyone working in/around the games industry. Obviously most attendees are local, but as well as the speakers that travel up especially, the events are open to anyone in the games industry outside Scotland that happens to be in town anyway for work/holiday etc.
