Conference organiser Tandem Events is launching a new conference for anyone involved in marketing computer or video games.

Games Marketing Forum will be a one-day event, taking place at The Cumberland Hotel in London’s West End on Thursday 22 November.

Designed as a result of Tandem Events speaking directly to games marketing teams, the conference offers a unique opportunity for games marketers to learn from marketing experts not only from the games industry but also from other consumer-facing markets.

“The Games Marketing Forum will allow delegates to keep-up-to-date with the latest marketing trends like social networking and understand how they can be integrated into their campaigns, listen to real-life success stories and take some new ideas back to the office. Plus just as importantly, mix with their peers and network at the evening drinks reception.” says Andy Lane, managing director, Tandem Events
