Earlier this month Games London completed its first major outbound trade mission, taking nine companies to Helsinki’s increasingly influential tech event Slush.
Games London supported a range of companies working across a variety of areas with assistance, accommodation and introductions at the show.
Our delegation consisted of:
The London Games Festival will return to the capital between 30 March - 9 April 2017.
April 2016 saw the first hugely successful London Games Festival, during which over 38,000 attendees visited 30+ events at 20 venues across London. This included the BAFTA Games Awards, EGX Rezzed, a giant Monopology board on Trafalgar Square, a variety of summits and talks at the BFI Southbank, and the inugural Games Finance Market. The festival organiser, Games London, plan to see this number grow to 50,000 attendees next year.
