W.IN is the London Games Festival’s networking event for women working in games, interactive and related creative industries. It is inclusive and welcoming to all but exclusively features female speakers and stories.
Over the last two years the event has hosted talks and panels featuring expert developers, writers, producers and presenters from a range of backgrounds and ages - some of them rising stars, others established and award-winning… all of them with impressive impact and potential in games.
These have included Naomi Alderman, Rhianna Pratchett, Violet Berlin, Fran Scott, Ellie Gibson, Erin O' Brien, Lily and Violet Adams (AKA the Nerd Pirates), Laura Taranto, Cara Ellison, Elisha Brown and Laurence Bouvard.
The event includes bookending networking sessions around an inspirational keynote, an on-stage interview and a no-holds-barred fireside chat.
W.IN is unique, informal, inclusive and inspirational.
W.IN returns to the games festival in 2018 on the afternoon of Friday, 13 April - with a focus on the topics of mentoring and entrepreneurship. We’re now looking for suggestions, proposals or ideas for speaker content - all suggestions, ideas and proposals are welcome - contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also looking for partners for the event sponsor - in previous years supporters found it a great platform to make contacts, engage potential new clients or employees, or align themselves with a unique platform for women during London’s influential games festival. Sponsor funding is also what enables us to offer out half our allocation of tickets to groups, networks and individuals that otherwise might not have the chance to attend. Contact Paul.Davies@games.london to find out how to get involved.
Tickets are available now. Half of our ticket allocation is available at £30 each (plus VAT and processing fees). The other half are free to established organisations, networks and companies that are actively supporting or running networks for women; we also have free +1 tickets for mentors or mentees - contact email@example.com to find out more about access.
