Tickets for the meeting system are £10 for investors, publishers and developers. A small number of $150 tickets are also available for service providers looking to meet with publishers and studios. You can book all of them via this link.

The event is made possible thanks to our sponsors, which this year includes Xsolla. If you're interested in supporting this year's event, contact Charlotte.Nangle@gamesindustry.biz.
