EGX, the UK’s biggest gaming event, is now serving trade as well as consumer with the addition of a dedicated business area to its 2016 show, taking place 22-25th September at the Birmingham NEC.
The GamesIndustry.biz Trade Zone has been created in partnership with leading industry resource, GamesIndustry.biz, and will offer dedicated events, meeting space and networking opportunities for the show’s UK and international attendees.
EGX is already an established fixture on the UK industry calendar, hosting the AGM of trade body UKIE and the GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit, and the new Trade Zone makes the event even more valuable for the many industry figures already attending the show from the UK and abroad.
“There has long been a need for a specific trade play in the UK so we’re fulfilling that demand with The GamesIndustry.biz Trade Zone @EGX”, commented David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events. “This will be a gated-entry trade only area for networking, meetings, a decent coffee, somewhere to rest weary feet and have a sandwich with colleagues and friends. EGX has an enviable track record of introducing great games to investors and partners as well as players, and a dedicated business area should make that much easier for all parties.”
Already home to number of investors patrolling the showfloor, EGX is a key beat on the global industry calendar and continues to attract a growing number of overseas visitors as well as the beating heart of the UK trade.
The GamesIndustry.biz Trade Zone @EGX will be open on during show hours on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd September and will support the full scope of the games industry, hosting representatives from publishers, developers, platform-holders, investors and recruiters covering PC, console and mobile.
Attendees will be able to book a daily table for meetings, and there will be stand and meeting room options. A limited number of presentation suites will be available for meetings on a larger scale. A
