The inaugural Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival (EDEF) is throwing its doors open to technology companies.
The festival’s Tech Hub exhibition will celebrate the worlds of virtual reality, gaming and interactive technology to an audience of more than 150,000.
“For the first year, EDEF is not charging companies to exhibit in the Tech Hub,” said a press release, “so if you have new content, hardware or VR material this is the perfect opportunity to show it off.”
Bringing games and coding to life for all ages
Held in the Assembly Rooms between 4 and 28 August, the first EDEF sets out to explore the “abundant emerging opportunities of how we entertain ourselves. It celebrates the growing ways that arts and entertainment can engage with digital technology and develop in this fast paced environment,” the press release added.
It said the festival will bring games and coding to life for all ages with daily workshops.
“Families can discover hands on the fun of creating with BBC Micro:Bit, programming their own robot with Lego Education and building complex environments in Minecraft and with Kodu.”
