Escape Christmas Customer Event 2023: Our Sponsors

Escape's Christmas Customer Event was a fantastic success - with a turnout of over 150 people to Bar Rumba in London, it was a great night filled with networking and celebration between studios across every creative industry. And much like how a party is only as good as its guests, Escape could not have organised such a wonderful evening without the brilliant support of the night's sponsors.

Here's a little bit more about each one, and what they provide for the industries we cover:

HP and AMD

HP is a name known worldwide, empowering users everywhere with the hardware capabilities to create and do more. Their partnership with AMD, a world leader in processing power, has taken things a step further by giving users next-gen CPUs with immense core count,  ensuring their workstation performance is up to the task for any professional workload.
