When business as usual is business unusual…
The Business Hub is our new event acting in lieu of key games festival content – with an underpinning online meeting system that will connect delegates from not just London and the UK – but the whole world.
You can sign up for a free ticket as you would any normal event, but will ultimately get plugged in to our partner Deal Room’s platform. You can message other delegates, book voice or video meetings, and find experts to get free advice from – and find investors who will hear your pitch.
With most other global games events now postponed, this is our way to build connections at a time when almost everyone in the games sector is working from home.
Monday 30 March: 1pm to 8pm
Tuesday 31 March: 10am to 4pm

New for 2020 and running over the afternoon of Monday 30 March and all day Tuesday 31 March is our new Office Hours expert sessions. You can book free 20 mins advice sessions with experts from across the industry representing legal, accounting, finance, funding, biz dev and more.
We had always wanted to provide this service when the event was intended as a physical meeting place – and we’re delighted that we can still offer it online. In fact, with 30+ experts on hand, the Business Hub is a great way to sharpen your skills, deepen your knowledge and grow your contact book while working remotely.
Our experts are named below – find them on the meeting system! And if we’re missing a theme or topic, email suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll ask our network and see if we can add experts to match.
