We've got lots of great events planned this year such as the annual ICT & Careers Expo, a free industry bus tour (applications will open soon!), heats of the new "So you think you can rock...?" and "Wii Idol" competitions, the PixelEd Multimedia Industry Dinner and by popular demand, sessions on InDesign, Photoshop, Flash and GameMaker brought to you by Natcoll.
