A big thanks to all five for joining our line-up at the event. They join our first four speakers announced last week and we’ll be announcing more speakers every week from now on. To hear these and many, many more across two tracks, head to FGS19 to secure your ticket.

FGS19 is a two-day conference being held on November 25th and 26th. We’ve booked the stunning Altitude 360 (now known as Atmosphere) venue by the river with panoramic views of London, so the vision of our speakers won’t be the only thing to marvel at. 

The event is for C-level, decision makers and leaders in the games industry. There will be no press and no reporting from the event. It’s an opportunity for the top-level of the industry, and those working in connected sectors, to get together and talk about the future of games as a business – whether that be platforms, marketing, publishing, development, online retail and much more.

Please get in contact with our programme director Tracey McGarrigan if you wish to secure a speaking slot at the event. However, please note that we are only accepting new talks, from senior executives, that provide valuable business insight for other industry leaders.

In addition, we’re looking for speakers who are also keen to attend the event as a whole, as there’s a big crossover between the kind of speaker we’re targeting and the audience we’ll draw. Both days will be relatively lightly scheduled, providing plenty of time and space for networking, which will form a big part of the event.If you want to reach this select audience then please contact Alex Boucher about sponsorship opportunities, or to make the most of the event we’re also offering private meeting areas.
