"Secret Sauce delivered two conferences and two major exhibition projects for Epic Games. They pulled off everything without a hitch, and attendees raved about how well-organized and professional the developer-focused events were. From planning through execution, Secret Sauce made it all very easy for us, and we would use them again.”

Mike Gamble, European Territory Manager, Epic Games

"After 4 years without running a developer conference, we employed Secret Sauce to deliver the hugely-attended event.. Comprising conference, networking and evening party, it ran smoothly and generated our most successful delegate feedback to date. Secret Sauce have high attention to detail and understand the needs of running a conference for the games industry"
