GET IT!

GAME DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE

SEPTEMBER 2, ODESSA, UKRAINE

Black Sea Hotel, Park Shevchenka

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Annual Conference Get IT! is the meeting place for more than 500 game industry professionals from all around the globe hosted in the heart of Europe, in Ukraine.

Since 2012, Get IT! has been rotating between different Ukrainian cities, and the seventh conference is coming back to Odessa, a major tourism center, also known as the “pearl of the Black Sea”, and one of the biggest Ukrainian IT hubs.

Among the key features of the conference there is a highly topical agenda that includes keynotes, interactive workshops and involving presentations from game development industry leaders, experts and skillful professionals in programming, art, game design, publishing, marketing and business development.

Along with that, Get IT! provides its attendees and partners with various networking opportunities connecting publishers with developers, investors with startups, and growing companies with talented employees.

The traditional part of the conference is Get IT! Indie Prize — a competition among indie game developers. Creators of the best projects will show their games at Get IT! Indie Prize Showcase and have a chance to get the awards and valuable prizes.

In 2017, for the very first time, Get IT! will give Unity developers the opportunity to validate their knowledge and programming skills and earn a professional credential taking the Unity Certification exam at the special reduced price.

LOCATION

Odessa is the third most populous city in Ukraine and a major tourism center, seaport and transportation hub located on the northwestern shore of the Black Sea. The city is sometimes called the “pearl of the Black Sea”, the “South Capital”, and “Southern Palmyra”.

Early September in Odessa is called by locals the “velvet season”, which means the most favorable period for spending time in the city when the weather is not so hot but still pretty warm, including the nights and the sea temperature.

Black Sea Hotel Park Shevchenka is located on the territory of the biggest park in the historic center of Odessa in a 10-minute walk from the sea. The beautiful location and venue at the seaside will create the perfect atmosphere for the relaxed discussions and networking.

For all Get IT! guests Black Sea Hotel provides a 10% discount for accommodation. Booking by phone: +38 (063) -755-66-61 (Viber, Telegram, WhatsApp). You just need to mention the key word “Get IT!”

Address: 1/20 Marazliivska street, Odessa, Ukraine, 65014
