The Hut’s product director Gian Luzio told MCV: “We are delighted to be involved in the London Games Conference as it gives us the opportunity to share ideas and shape the future of the games industry as it continues to evolve and push the boundaries of technology.
“We’re bringing Zavvi back as a leading entertainment retailer and we will be launching a full online entertainment retail experience with digital products available from all formats such as films, books music and games.
“Digital downloads are part of the future of online retail and complement the physical product retail experience that Zavvi.com offers.
“This conference will give us the chance to discuss all the current developments with the key people in our industry.”
The conference will open with a speech from Shadow Culture Minister Ed Vaizey.
It will feature exclusive research plus sessions looking at the decline of physical media, the shifting boundaries and balance of power within development, publishing and retail, plus the proprietary online gaming networks of Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo.
The event will be followed by dinner and networking opportunities at BAFTA.
