A speaker at a podium with a presentation behind him at REACTOR Big Gamification Challenge Seminar

REACTOR would like to invite SMEs and start-up companies in the Cambridge and Peterborough region that have great concepts to showcase them to sector representatives and users. This is part of the support towards business concepts developed in response to the Big Gamification Challenge 2018 | a series of Smart Cities Challenges.

Our annual Business Showcase is a celebratory afternoon, exploring how local SME businesses working with REACTOR are creating innovative products and services that exemplify how gamification can be used to enhance relationships.

The afternoon will also feature the launch of our Big Gamification Challenge for 2019.

Join us to find out how the power of games can help you connect with your environment, your town and those your live and work with.
