EGX Rezzed secures record attendance for biggest ever show

London's biggest gaming show celebrates another year of growth

EGX Rezzed, the London indie-focused consumer show organised by GamesIndustry.biz parent company Gamer Network, has celebrated another year of phenomenal growth after attracting a record number of visitors to Tobacco dock last week.

Showcasing over 220 games across more than 500 screens, Rezzed played host to gamers and industry figures alike as keynote speakers like Ken Levine and Dean Hall wowed crowds with tempting teasers of things to come. On the show floor, the work of the best of the world's small teams was on show on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, with VR, boardgames and high profile tournament play adding to the draw for players from all over the UK and abroad.

GamesIndustry.biz also had its biggest ever presence at the show, unveiling our first ever magazine, featuring some of the best content from the site's last year, exclusive UK industry research and the inaugural GI 100 - giving a platform for recognition to the 100 most influential figures in the domestic market. In addition, a Meet the Indies publisher mix and match added a fresh twist by making the game makers the focus, seeing well over 230 meetings take place and several games secure funding an publishing deals.

"Although this was the biggest and best Rezzed to date, in terms of both attendees and exhibitors, we have been really pleased to see that the atmosphere of the show has remained uniquely inclusive and fun," said Rupert Loman, CEO of Gamer Network. "The feedback we've had from gamers, exhibitors and speakers has been overwhelmingly positive and we would like to thanks all of our partners, sponsors and exhibitors for helping us to create another outstanding experience for UK gamers."
