Richard Wilson, TIGA CEO, and Jon Kingsbury, programmer director for Creative Economy at NESTA, will be joined by John Whittingdale MP, Bill Olner MP and Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley.
"The event... will bring together leaders from the worlds of gaming, film, animation and TV alongside politicians from all main political parties and will focus on skills, innovation and cross-industry collaboration," a statement read.
Play Together will take place from 12pm onwards on June 15 at the House of Commons. Tickets are available for "senior games industry professionals and affiliate industries" but due to space restrictions preference will be given to TIGA members.
