UK games industry trade group UKIE announced that it is sponsoring for the Digital Shoreditch Festival. Taking place May 3 – 7, the Digital Shoreditch Festival is a "digital playground" featuring open houses, large-scale projection screens, interactive artwork, augmented reality games, and late night parties provided by the local community of digital businesses.
The festival will end with a one day summit featuring festival founders PlayGen, London Metropolitan University, Less Rain, Albion, and Intro. There will also be a family day with digital interactive displays, installations and artwork, and a 3D printing conference and exhibition called Thingmakers.
