British publisher association ELSPA has announced early details of this year's International Games Summit, with the two day event set to target a wider range of delegates from across the entertainment industries.

The conference will take place at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London, on June 21st and 22nd, and while speaker details have not yet been announced, the line-up in previous years has featured a range of luminaries from across the industry.

Last year's event, for example, included a headline-grabbing keynote from then Nintendo Europe boss David Gosen, in which he slammed Microsoft's rush to launch a next-generation console early, as well as insightful speeches from Activision's president of publishing Kathy Vrabeck and Microsoft's corporate VP of retail sales and marketing Peter Moore, among many others.

This year, ELSPA is promising to embrace a wider range of delegates from across different entertainment industries, widening its focus to address issues concerning the intersection of videogames with the music, film, mobile and new technology industries.

"We want to infuse more of the wider entertainment values of our industry into this our third annual Summit," according to ELSPA director general Roger Bennett. "It will be more dynamic and look in more depth at exploiting the commercial synergies of new technologies and cross media opportunities. It will also study the industry's recent and forecasted fiscal and creative development."
