Trojan Horse Was A Unicorn Reveals Expanded Recruitment Slate for THU 2019

Leading European digital entertainment conference announces extensive list of major studios that will be recruiting at the upcoming September 23-28 event in Valletta, Malta.

Trojan Horse Was A Unicorn 2019 has just announced a number of leading digital entertainment companies, including Walt Disney Animation Studios, Bandai Namco, Industrial Light & Magic, Riot Games, Ubisoft, King and Sumo Digital, will be attending the upcoming THU Recruitment event, part of this year’s THU conference taking place in Valletta, Malta, from September 23-28.

THU is one of the largest events of its kind in Europe, bringing together all areas of digital arts and entertainment: movies, games, visual effects, animation, and VR. Last year's THU attracted over 1,000 attendees from 79 countries -- a growing community of artists, programmers, entrepreneurs, and industry professionals, who call themselves "the Tribe." They come to THU to meet and learn from guest speakers, to develop their skills, to network, and, perhaps, to find a job in the digital entertainment industry.

"Recruitment is a crucial instrument in our mission to help attendees fulfil their potential, find new paths, and develop their careers," Andre Luis, THU founder, explains. "Tribe members are passionate about their craft, and that's why some of the best companies in the industry come to THU to discover new talent, year after year."

Recruitment sessions will take place during the first two days of THU (September 23-24), in Valletta's 16th century Mediterranean Conference Centre. Recruitment is a year-round process for THU, but the sessions provide an opportunity for candidates and potential employers to meet face to face in a relaxed, creative environment. Attendees are able to upload their portfolios in advance, to receive reviews and feedback, and to continue conversations over the course of the event.
