Game Audio Events 2018

This is by no means a full list of all events. I've included some events that will be useful for any of us in Game Audio in terms of specific game audio only events, and other events that have some feature on game audio or may help with networking with game developers and others in the industry. I am based in the UK so have better knowledge of UK based events, if I've missed anything, let me know and I'll add it!
