World Gaming Executives Announces Stellar Advisory Panel

Since its inception in 2007 World Gaming Executives has been approached by a number of journalists and bloggers to contribute our thoughts on News items and PR from the Games Industry.

Believing that the people best qualified to answer many of these questions are industry specialists from within the WGE Membership; and ahead of the launch of WGE’s first digital magazine publication next week, WGE has created an Advisory Panel of Games Industry Experts and ‘Thought Leaders’.
