“Level Up 2021” held on 6th June 2021 wishes to convey the message “Conquer games – Conquer life – From gamers to conquerors”. Its purpose is not only to connect young people who enjoy playing games, but also to provide useful and up-to-date information about the development of the Game industry in Vietnam and all around the world, as well as the implications and practical application of the industry, thereby helping students identify their real passions and be well-oriented in the future.
The event is organized by Level Up – a non-profit project founded in April 2020, by high school students in Hanoi, to learn and discover new aspects of Game.
During the event, students will have the opportunity to meet speakers such as Mr. David Holloway – Lecturer in Computer Games Design and Programming (CGDP) at BUV, who has many years of experience in teaching Game programming at various universities in the UK, as well as experts in the field of technology and game product development: Mr. Hung Vu – Founder and Gamification consultant at Ludo Lab, and Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Linh, Technology Director at Bread N’ Tea.

From 14:00 to 16:00, speakers Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Linh and Mr. David Holloway will not only briefly introduce the history of the formation and development of this industry, but also delve into the production process of Game products.
