Tiga launches new Professional Services Guide

Immediate release

March 16th 2009

Tiga, the UK’s games developers’ trade association, has published a Professional Services Guide 2009. The Guide provides discounts exclusive to Tiga members ranging from five to 20 per cent on key business services, including BlitzTech Technology, motion capture, animation services, accountancy, insurance, legal, PR, and recruitment.

Richard Wilson, CEO of Tiga, said:

“I am determined that Tiga should provide tangible benefits for its members. Our Professional Services Guide 2009 provides members with access to a range of professional businesses, many of whom provide discounts exclusive to Tiga members.

“Tiga membership also often entitles members to savings when attending key industry events. For example, Tiga members will be able to benefit from a 10 per cent discount to attend the Develop Conference in Brighton (July 14th– 16th 2009).

Richard Wilson added:

“Tiga’s vision is to make the UK the best place in the world to do games business. Our Professional Services Guide 2009 contributes to this objective by enabling Tiga members to access vital business services at more affordable prices.”

A copy of Tiga’s Professional Services Guide 2009 can be obtained from Lorna Evans, Tiga’s Project Manager ( lorna.evans@tiga.org) and from Steff Rickwood, Tiga’s Project Manager ( steff.rickwood@tiga.org).
