Jens Uwe Intat to feature in top investment session

10 GamesIndustry.biz Network members to be given opportunity to attend invite-only event

Electronic Arts' European boss, Dr Jens Uwe Intat, is to headline a series of key figures in an investment panel session to take place next month, hosted by IBIS Capital's Tim Merel and the London Business School.

Intat will feature alongside other games people - including Bigpoint chairman Simon Guild, Spil Games CEO Peter Driessen and Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley - as well as several major names from the world of finance and media.

Romain Gonthier, director of private equity firm Veronis Suhler Stevenson, and Megumi Ikeda, executive director of venture capital business GE/NBC Universal Peacock Equity will both attend, as will Time Warner's director of strategy and corporate development, Benjamin Vedrenne-Cloquet.

The event, taking place in London on May 24, is invite-only and aimed at the senior members of the videogames business, and GamesIndustry.biz has ten invitations to give away.

"We are hoping to bring together deal and decision makers from all sides of the videogames and investment industries, to find new deal opportunities which they might not see otherwise," said Merel of the event.

"We won't have capacity for any more than 100 invited guests and want to keep the quality of opportunities high. Because of the quality of registered members at GamesIndustry.biz, we wanted to offer 10 free invitations exclusively for your readers."

Anybody wishing to attend should contact Tim Merel directly, stating that they are a member of the GamesIndustry.biz Network and providing details of their company and role.

In addition to the panel session itself, there will also be networking time before and after the main event, to provide the opportunity to meet a host of directors, CEOs, CFOs and partners from games companies, VC and private equity firms, and major media companies.
