Unity Training Day
Unity Technologies will also host a separate Unity Training Day event at the Vancouver Convention Centre on August 27 to give new and inexperienced users a foundation for Unity development before the big show begins. This year the training day will focus on hands-on tutorials where attendees build a small project over a full day of information-packed sessions covering everything from the initial setup of a scene to basic retargeting and animation in Mecanim and particle effect generation in Shuriken.

These regional two day events are designed to provide an ever expanding global community of Unity developers with access to Unite-style learning and networking opportunities and targeted region-specific sessions without the high cost of overseas travel.
