London Games Festival is an annual celebration of interactive entertainment and games talent, featuring an exciting range exhibitions and showcases plus influential and agenda-setting events.

In 2016 it drew in over 38,000 people to key venues across the capital including Trafalgar Square, Somerset House, Southbank and Tobacco Dock. There was something for all audiences, from a giant Monopoly board in Trafalgar Square through to a series of inspiring talks and quirky Fringe events. 316 games were showcased across the ten days. The festival will return in 2017.

Our Games Finance Market connects interactive entertainment companies with new investors and business partners. The 2016 edition brought in investors with £100m+ to spend and created millions of pounds of potential business, including investment for companies working on their first product.

The GFM will return in 2017 with twice as many businesses and investors, plus targeted meetings for PC, console, VR, AR and mobile games. In the run up to the event we’ll also be running training workshops so attendees can perfect their pitch.
