Taking place March 17, 2017, the Pitch Competition connects gaming industry veterans directly with independent game developers in a private atmosphere to help build great pitches for new projects.
Developers participating in the Pitch Competition will have invaluable access to some of the most renowned industry experts who will provide extensive feedback, tips, and assistance in further defining a product pitch. In addition to this, one pitch will be selected by the panel of industry experts for the title “SXSW Gaming Best Pitch 2017.”
This unique offering for SXSW Gaming focuses solely on video games and their developers as a means to further establish product pitches for new games and projects. If you’re a developer looking to gain recognition for your current project, and are willing to take the next step in making it a reality, then the Pitch Competition is a can’t-miss opportunity for you.
SXSW Gaming 2017 takes place in the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas from Thursday, March 16 – Saturday, March 18.
