FREE: Discover the British Games Institute 

13-Jul-2017
Room 1
Indie Bootcamp
Rick Gibson, Ian Livingstone, Jo Twist (UKIE) and Richard Wilson (TIGA) present and discuss the proposal for the British Games Institute, a landmark new agency that, if successful, will nearly triple the amount of funding government provides to the games industry and fund games production, cultural events and education for British games companies. This talk will include a question and answer session with the audience.

Takeaway:
* Discover what games, cultural events and educational initiatives the BGI might fund if it succeeds in winning government funding
* Find out why UKIE and TIGA have joined together with leading industry figures and nearly half the UK's games companies to call for new government investment in games
* Bring your own questions about the BGI for the panel to answer and find out how you can help lobby the government to fund this
