Sega, Neowiz and Hypetrain Digital join GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit at PAX

Three more names sign-up for next month's investor event

Games publishers Sega, Neowiz and Hypetrain Digital are the latest names looking to sign indie games at PAX East next month.

The trio will be part of the GamesIndustry.biz Investment Summit, which takes place on Thursday, February 27th in Boston and is an event designed to get games and studios funded. The new companies join PlayStation, Oculus, Ubisoft, Gearbox, Kowloon Nights, TinyBuild, Merge Games, Humble Bundle, Super.com, Graffiti Games, Snail Games and Xsolla. Many more will be announced in the coming days.

Tickets are on sale now. Each ticket includes refreshments, lunch, the opportunity to join our meeting system and a two-day pass to PAX East (Thursday and Friday).

50 indie developers have so far signed up to the event.

The event begins with a morning of talks. Confirmed speakers so far include VR giant Oculus, PlayStation's Shuhei Yoshida, Kickstarter's Anya Combs and Xsolla's David Daniels.

A networking lunch follows, and then the meeting system begins. Ticket buyers are asked to fill in a form that details themselves and their game. That form is presented to all attending investors and publishers, who will then pick which developers they'd like to see. We can guarantee every publisher will see your form, but we cannot guarantee meetings on the day.

Tickets are on sale now. PAX East indie exhibitors can request a free ticket here.

Publishers and investors looking to attend the Summit are encouraged to buy a table to meet with studios. Tables cost $700 and can be booked by emailing Jamie.Sefton@gamesindustry.biz.

Xsolla is the headline sponsor for the event, which will take place at the Aloft Hotel next door to PAX East in Boston. Interested in being a sponsor for the Investment Summit? Contact our events manager Charlotte Nangle through here.

PAX East is run by Reed Pop, the parent company of GamesIndustry.biz
