Events and Activities at UK Games Expo for Publishers and Designers

I have this Idea for a Game...

Since its inception, UK Games Expo has always been an event encouraging new games to reach publication. In particular our aim has been to help the small indie publisher and the new designer.

This year we are delighted to have partnered with Cartamundi to create and bring to you a dedicated Publisher-Designer Track. Cartamundi come on board as official Publisher-Designer Track sponsors.

This track will offer prototype testing tables run by Playtest UK, seminars and panels for games designers and publishers, networking events and opportunities for budding designers to pitch their ideas to publishers.
We also offer a Debut designers guide and of course affordable starter stands - see exhibitor guide.

Here are a few highlights:
* Speed-dating - a opportunity for game designers to make a 5 minute elevator pitch to publishers looking for new games. Will your game be picked up for publication?
* Networking - Designers, publishers and other industry professionals can meet up at a Friday evening reception kindly supported by Cartamundi.
* Wyvern's Lair - A very public event where you are grilled on your design by the Wyvern's and then the UKGE visitor votes on your game. What will be this year's hot idea?
* Full programme of panels and workshops - whether you need to find out about Kickstarter, how to make prototypes, how to market games or even how to include art we have a session for you.

Full details on all this as well and information on how to participate in these events will be released on the 1st of March. That day will also see the launch of submissions for Wyvern’s Lair and Speed Dating. So start thinking about those game ideas and watch this space.
