Women in Games conference sets date for September 2

Event to take place at University of Westminster

The fifth annual Women in Games conference will take place at the University of Westminster in London on September 2, 2015, with organisers committing to the biggest show yet in the event's history.

Speakers, panels and workshops will this year focus on the best ways to obtain the skills and contacts necessary to make inroads into the games industry, particularly for those just starting out. The speaker list, which will be extended over the course of the coming months, will include Ukie chair Andy Payne; Vicky Smalley, CTO Small Jelly and Claire Tavernier, the owner and MD of StoryTech Life.

"This year's conference programme is shaping up to be our best yet, in terms of content which will help delegates' fast track their careers in the games industry," said WiG CEO Jenny Richards-Stewart. "We wanted to focus on practical subjects and have also introduced workshops covering the main disciplines of games development. As always we have tried to keep the ticket prices as low as possible so that it is within the reach of students, entry level delegates and those working for small start-ups and Indies. I am looking forward to revealing more details of the conference programme in due course. We will also be announcing some exciting initiatives from Women in Games over the next few weeks."

Early bird tickets for the show are available from the organiser's website, priced at £50 each. Full priced tickets will be £95.
