GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit meeting deadline today

If you want to request meetings from our 30 investors or publishers, submit your meeting request form today

Independent game developers have less than 24 hours to request meetings at the GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit at EGX.

The event takes place on Thursday, October 17 at London ExCel. It features talks, networking opportunities, lunch and one-to-one meetings between investors/publishers and games studios.

Game studios that want to request one-to-one meetings with the attending investors/publishers must do so today (Friday, October 4). The link to the meeting request form is included with the ticket. Tickets are on sale here for 99 (+ fees), and also includes a four-day pass to the EGX consumer show.

Publishers, platform holders and investors who are available to meet at the Investment Summit are: Agnitio Capital, Amazon Game Tech, BFI, Dear Villagers, Frontier Developments, GamesCo London, Google, Green Man Gaming, Jagex, Kalypso, Kowloon Nights, LEGO Ventures, London Venture Partners, Makers Fund, Miniclip, MTG, Renaissance, SEGA, Sold Out, Square Enix Collective, Super.com, Team17, Triple Dragon, Those Awesome Guys, Xbox, Xsolla and more to be announced.

For those developers that miss the deadline (or book tickets after this date), the GamesIndustry.biz team will endeavour to connect you with investors on the day. However, this will be dependent on the available slots and cannot be guaranteed.

The Investment Summit begins at 9:30 with tea/coffee before a series of talks from the likes of Team17, Xbox, Google Stadia and LEGO, plus our Games Investment Panel. We then break for a hot lunch, before the one-to-one meetings begin. If you book a ticket, you'll also receive an EGX industry pass, which will give you access to a smartphone app that you can use to connect with attendees during the course of the EGX show (which closes on Sunday, October 20th).

If you're an investor or publisher, we have two remaining tables. If you'd like one, contact Jamie.Sefton@gamesindustry.biz.
