One day left for 'super' early bird tickets

Nokia's head of publisher relations is one of six new speakers confirmed for Newcastle conference GameHorizon.

Ian Livingstone, the creative director of Eidos, is to host the event for the second year running, which now includes Nokia's Alex Bubb and Hansoft CEO Patrick Palm as speakers.

"Our line-up of speakers is really taking shape, and we're glad to have Nokia on board who will be able to provide an insight into where things are heading in the mobile games industry," said conference director Carri Cunliffe.

"The conference as a whole will look at where the games industry is heading with particular focus on digital distribution as well as having some good business and technology speakers, such as Steve Clayton. It will help focus decision makers' minds on what are the opportunities in these challenging times, as well as giving them the opportunity of networking with other games industry professionals."

Tomorrow is the deadline for 'super' early bird reduced-price passes for the conference. For more information, visit the event's official website.
