The BGI team will be in Brighton to talk about the plans for the BGI on Thursday 13th.
Rick Gibson, Ian Livingstone, Jo Twist (UKIE) and Richard Wilson (TIGA) will present and discuss the proposal for the British Games Institute, a landmark new agency that, if successful, will nearly triple the amount of funding government provides to the games industry and fund games production, cultural events and education for British games companies. This talk will include a question and answer session with the audience.
* Discover what games, cultural events and educational initiatives the BGI might fund if it succeeds in winning government funding
* Find out why UKIE and TIGA have joined together with over 500 industry leaders from over 450 UK games companies, universities, arts and science organisations to call for new government investment in games
* Bring your own questions about the BGI for the panel to answer and find out how you can help lobby the government to fund this
The Develop conference session is part of a wider consultation with the games sector being run by the BGI team and the trade bodies. Details of the online consultation will be announced shortly.
