Full Indie UK's group leader, Jake Birkett said: "We've got a great roster of speakers lined up who will be talking about a variety of interesting topics.  If you are an indie and live in The Midlands this is a good opportunity to get to know some other indies in your area. I look forward to meeting you there!"

Full Indie UK is a group of indie game developers who have teamed up to share knowledge and experience. The group also engages in cross-promotion, and writes a regular column for PocketGamer.biz. It is open to any independent developers working in the UK, who have released a game or who are close to shipping a game.

Formed in 2012, the group was originally known as Best of British, and ran game jams, collaborative events and released two games to the App Store. Its new identity as Full Indie UK coincides with new leadership from Jake Birkett (Grey Alien Games) and an initiative to extend its events to studios all across the UK.
