Excellent news! GameHorizon is a great conference - maybe with GI.biz behind it we can see more of the Southern developers attending :-) ... it's much more laid back than Develop Conf - more about the people, I reckon.

How does one go about acquiring a conference? Did you kick down the doors and storm in armed with guns, legal documents and a biro?

If GH is more relevant that e current crop of Develop lectures and talks, then I am sure the southern counties will turn up for sure.
However there is only so much mobile, social, casual talks/ postmortems, monetization one can physically handle and a good platform agnostic, back to basics look at making solid ames are surely a good formula for universal appeal
