EUROPEAN WOMEN IN GAMES CONFERENCE TO TAKE PLACE WEDNESDAY 10th SEPTEMBER

Career oriented conference to offer exciting personal development programme for both women and men at an accessible price.

The fourth annual European Women in Games Conference is to take place on Wednesday 10 th September at London South Bank University. The programme will feature a  range of current topics including setting up your own games company, games industry career advice to how to encourage more school children to consider a career in the games industry.

As in previous years the day’s conference will comprise a mix of keynote speeches, panel discussions and the European Women in Games Hall of Fame Awards. The line-up of speakers and panellists will reflect the diverse talent that exists in the games industry. Key note speakers  will include Emma Mulqueeny, the founder of Rewired State and Young Rewired State and a Commissioner for the Speaker's Commission on Digital Democracy and Andrew Webber, Marketing Director - Audience Acquisition at Microsoft.  More speakers and panellists will be announced over the coming weeks.

The conference has steadily grown in popularity since its inaugural event in 2011. This year’s event is expected to have the greatest attendance yet helped by the early bird ticket price of £20 per person.

This makes the conference much more accessible to students and entry level games industry professionals. In addition the organisers are keen to stress that this is an inclusive event and male delegates are equally very welcome.

Announcing the details of the conference organiser David Smith said, “The European Women in Games Conference has steadily grown over the past four years. The 2014 event will help all industry professionals’ progress their careers and we are making it accessible to everyone. I’d like to thank London South Bank University for hosting the conference and making it possible for us to offer attractive ticket prices for a first rate and pertinent programme both for existing industry professionals as well as those hoping to join our industry.”
