TIGA named Trade Association of the Year

Wins four awards at Trade Association Forum Best Practice event

TIGA scored four awards at the Trade Association Forum Best Practice Award last night, including Trade Association of the Year 2011, Annual Report of the Year Award and Commercial Initiative Award.

Richard Wilson, CEO of TIGA, was also honoured with the Leadership Award.

"It is a privilege to serve as TIGA CEO and I am grateful to the TIGA board for enabling me to serve our ambitious, dynamic, and exciting organisation," said Wilson on his award.

“TIGA is intent on building an enduring organisation, the best in its field, one which improves year on year, to benefit the UK games industry and the wider economy. We are therefore absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for these awards and to have won four."

TIGA also won Trade Association of the Year in 2010, and the repeat performance is a first for the awards. This year the association was shortlisted in seven categories, as well as two special awards.

“We are developing TIGA into a tenacious, innovative, growing and ambitious organisation in order to advance the interests of games developers and developer-publishers and to achieve our vision of making the UK the best place in the world to do games business," added TIGA chairman and CEO Jason Kingsley.

"Winning four awards at the Trade Association Forum’s Best Practice Awards is a stunning achievement and confirms that TIGA is on track to achieve its ambitious goals."

TIGA is a trade association representing the UK games industry, and campaigns on important issues like games tax relief. In May the association appointed five new board members, including Mark Webley of Lionhead and Crytek UK managing director Karl Hilton.
