Network your way to success at Interactive Futures!

Tuesday 21st of January 2020 01:59 PM

Interactive Futures 2020 takes place on January 31 and February 1 at the Royal Spa Centre in Leamington – and it’s an amazing opportunity for you to meet with colleagues, potential partners and friends from the Leamington Spa Games Hub and beyond.

Of course, the conference and EXPO will be great places to start conversations, but make sure you put the IF Networking Drinks Reception in your diary from 5pm on Friday, January 31st – it’s included in the price of your ticket, so no need to register separately.

Taking place in the Royal Spa Centre right after the conference and investor speed dating sessions have concluded, we’ll have Leamington Games Hub-themed cocktails available from our friends at Jaegermeister and the chance to mingle with all of the day’s speakers and delegates, the gathered ranks of the games media, plus video-games royalty in the form of John and Brenda Romero.

The two-day Interactive Futures conference and expo (www.interactive-futures.com) will once again showcase to the industry and to the general public the rich seam of talent and opportunity within the Leamington Games Hub.

The event will highlight the region’s heritage within the UK video games industry, its talent and creativity, the unrivalled community of indie and major studios, and career opportunities – both for students and for those already working in games and beyond.

Interactive Futures is being funded by the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), Warwickshire County Council and Warwick District Council, with the support of local industry.

On Friday, January 31, the Interactive Futures conference programme will also highlight key issues relevant to the region and the wider games industry, with topics including Ukie’s Regional Economic Impact Report – and why Leamington is punching above its weight; How to finance your game and studio; and How Leamington became one of the biggest games hubs in the UK.

Saturday, February 1 will see Interactive Futures open its doors to consumers and students to inspire the next generation of talent, with career opportunities the key focus for the day, during which John and Brenda will be on hand to help guide attendees on the best way forward for their professional goals.

Conference topics will include Levelling Up: What skills and qualifications are required for a career in games; How we made it: Young indie developers discuss their careers; Beyond coding: Why there’s a career in games for everyone; and much more.

An EXPO showcasing the best of the Leamington Games Hub will run throughout the two days.
