Triangle's First Video Game Technology Showcase and Career Fair Set for November 17

CARY, NC--(Marketwire - November 6, 2007) - Hollywood hooked up with Silicon Valley and headed east to North Carolina's Research Triangle Park. Today, the Triangle is home to some of the world's leading companies in the $38 billion global video game industry.

The Triangle's video game community is experiencing robust growth, in part due to the unprecedented collaboration between private sector companies and the region's internationally-acclaimed universities.
