Trade bodies to join forces for two-day event

Tiga and UKIE unite for Edinburgh Interactive

Games industry trade bodies UKIE and Tiga have teamed up to deliver this year’s Edinburgh Interactive Festival.

The event will run from August 11th to 12th, and will feature a range of free public screenings of new games and tech, plus public sessions on how to get involved in the games industry.

This year’s event will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel. Attendees can use the Edinburgh Interactive booking code 2248725 at the Radisson to get special rates on rooms.

The early bird delegate pass for the event itself is available now for £175 plus no VAT. This offer ends May 31st.

“Having the combined force of TIGA and UKIE working together can only make this year’s Edinburgh Interactive the best ever,” said Edinburgh Interactive chairman and Nintendo UK general manager David Yarnton.

“This year is a fresh start for Edinburgh Interactive and there’ll be something for everyone. We’ll be developing an exciting programme of business events, fun showcases and educational seminars that will highlight the very best of the interactive entertainment industry.

“Having the conference and showcase screenings at the prestigious Radisson Blu Hotel, on the Royal Mile, will ensure that Edinburgh Interactive will be right at the heart of this year’s Fringe.”

“I’d urge people to take advantage of the Early Bird rates and book their tickets now.”
