86 members onboard as association moves away from publisher bias

UKIE

The Trade association for UK Interactive Entertainment

Trade body UKIE has doubled its membership in less than a year, with a total of 86 members.

What used to be considered a publishing body now includes developers, multi-media platforms and broadcasters, distributors, all of Skillset's accredited games design and animation universities, retailers, media owners, service companies and the three console platform holders.

"Doubling the size of our membership in less than a year means that we can now truly say that UKIE represents all parts of the interactive entertainment industry," said chairman Andy Payne.

"We are now no longer pre-dominantly a publisher trade body, as for the first time non-publisher interactive entertainment businesses make up the majority of UKIE membership. We look forward to this new balance of membership being reflected in the UKIE Board elections later this year."

So what does UKIE offer to an indie development/digital publishing studio?

TIGA is putting a lot of effort into supporting new indie publishers and digital developers. Feel free to drop me an email (patrick (AT) ndreams.com) if you want to know any more ;)

You mean TIGA is a better bet than UKIE?

Thank you for the question Richard. UKIE has established and is building new products and services for developers all the time. Too many to detail here so I'll contact you directly. If any other developers would like to hear more I can be contacted on sam.collins(at)ukie.org.uk
