Protocon – George Mall 14th and 15th March 2013

The Garden Route is hosting the most unconventional convention for creators ever seen in our area on 14 and 15 March at the Garden Route Mall in George.

ProtoCon 2013 is all about getting creative thinkers together to learn about creativity techniques and idea development, rapid prototyping, technology to kick-start your concept development and even the legal pitfalls of coming up with the next big thing. We will have both local and national speakers sharing their experiences in an informal “jeans and tekkies” event that is sure to leave the delegates enlightened and inspired to take their ideas to the next level.
