More than a chance to escape the freezing London weather for sunny L.A., the thriving vfx companies, in particular, were able to tout their recent successes and do a little off-site business with Warner Bros., Fox and Universal, who have outsourced the bulk of their tentpole vfx work to the U.K. over the last few years.
