Games Up? panel announced for GameHorizon

Members of the campaign will take part in a panel on the effects of tax breaks on the games industry

GameHorizon has announced a Games Up? panel session at the upcoming conference on June 18 - 19, at the Baltic Flower Mill, Newcastle.

The panel will feature prominent members of Games Up? - a cross industry campaign to lobby the government for tax breaks. During the session the panel will debate what the effect of government support would be on the UK games industry.

"Government support, or lack thereof, has been a sore point for many within the games industry for some considerable time now. We've been able to pull together an extremely strong panel for the session," said Carri Cunliffe, director of the GameHorizon Conference.

"With strong opinions and arguments on both sides of the issue, the debate should be a fierce one, and will give delegates the chance to put their views forward to the 'Games Up?' campaign."

Rick Gibson, Director and Founder of Games Investor Consultancy, will introduce the session by taking a look at the global situation regarding tax breaks, after which the panel debate will follow, chaired by Ian Livingstone, the creative director of Eidos.

Alongside Gibson and Livingstone will be Angie Moxham the founder of 3 Monkeys Communications, Chris Roycroft-Davis the former Executive Editor at The Sun and Gareth Edmondson, Studio Manager at Ubisoft Reflections.
