Darren Falcus, MD Iguana Entertainment said“The previous UKTI lunch session that I attended at GDC was excellent, very informative, well organized and a great chance to discuss business with a host of key industry people. It was certainly a highlight of my GDC visit.”
Jason Kingsley from Rebellion said:“I found the lunches were a very useful place to revisit and build on business acquaintances and meet new, high powered individuals in an informal setting for an extended period of time. Getting more than a few minutes with some of these people is difficult at the best of times. Sharing lunch with them is priceless.”
The Best of British Showcase will allow 15 UK companies to have the opportunity to demo their games and services to international key industry decision makers, press and potential partners. Companies will be given their own branded demo station and will receive a GDC Expo pass worth $250. The chosen companies will also benefit from having their showcase promoted to UKTI San Francisco’s vast and expansive industry contacts.
A competitive application process will select the best, cutting-edge companies to attend the Brit Showcase. Attendance to the Executive Lunches is on a first come first served basis.
