The UK video games industry is now estimated to be worth £3.86 billion, more than music and video combined. Globally, video games continue to capture our attention in novel ways, pierce new demographics, and extend into new markets. Competitive video games (esports) are increasingly stealing headlines as competition prize pools and viewership figures balloon. Businesses are looking for ways to capture this momentum in a meaningful way and unlock demographics that are beyond the reach of traditional media. In doing so, they will have to understand how video games are changing the way entertainment is consumed, distributed, and monetised. Innovation in video game production, cross-platform integration, marketing, and broadcasting is having a significant impact on the shape of the entertainment industry as we know it.

The event will be live-streamed on our Facebook page.
