London Games Festival is back, this time running from March 26th to April 6th, 2020.
With the 2019 edition of the event attracting over 97,000 people across 40+ events, the organisers of the 2020 show anticipate over 100,000 guests this time around in the hope that, like last year, Games London’s wider programme will continue “to deliver for the capital with over £25m potential business generated in the last 12 months for businesses in London and across the UK”.
The event kicks off with EGX Rezzed, one of the biggest PC and indie games shows in the world, and then Ensemble, the festival’s yearly exhibition of BAME talent in games. The LGF HUB two-day conference and expo will run on March 30th and March 31st with a focus on the global games industry and key issues around games impact, interactive narratives and games culture, and then Games Finance Market will take place on April 1st and April 2nd.
Interested in participating? Applications are now open for developers and professionals looking to take part in London Games Festival and the wider Games London programme. The deadline for Games Finance Market is January 22nd, 2020, whilst the third phase of BAME exhibition Ensemble’s deadline is Friday December 6th, 2019.
The team is also looking for experts for an ‘Office Hours’ programme of free advice for games companies run during the festival – email firstname.lastname@example.org for more.
