Should the UK’s two leading games industry trade groups merge as one?

It’s a question that Tiga and UKIE have deeply considered, but partnership talks between both the associations broke down earlier this year.

But what’s best for the games industry? Is it necessary to have two trade bodies to represent different views in the industry, or could their combined forces have a bigger influence in Parliament?

Develop wants a consensus on the matter, and has launched a new survey for industry professionals.

Take part in our eight-question survey and you’ll also be entered into a prize draw to win a ticket to London Games Conference on 10 November (worth £269).

LGC is the essential business forum and networking event for decision makers within the interactive entertainment sector, examining the challenges within a fast-changing market and new business models.

The November 10th conference has speakers from GameStop, Valve, OnLive, PopCap and many more lined up to talk about the digital games market.
