MINECRAFT? MINEFIELD? OR BIG BUSINESS?

With Ian Livingstone CBE, the legendary founder of Games Workshop - who saw growth of over 50% in net profit in six months from over 400 stores. A phenomenal business! And Jo Twist, CEO of UKIE (Association for UK Interactive Entertainment), the trade body for the British games-making industry. Top speakers on a 21st century business.
 
The UK is amongst the world's leading creators of video entertainment, with many successful start-ups and stock market billionaires, ever since the Coalition government bowed to the industry's lobbying and brought in tax concessions for games makers. A bit like the micro-brewery boom, this has worked beyond anybody's imaginings.
 
Meanwhile, as other High Street retailers fall apart under the online onslaught, Games Workshop is opening stores in quirky corners all over the country; and in them you will find grown men from the "community" painting plastic toys and paying for the privilege. They are making collectors' models to treasure. How about that as a marketing tactic?

Come and join us, and bring your gamer friends, sons, daughters, colleagues. Anyone under 21 may attend for only £10, to cover breakfast and room hire.  

Agenda:
7:30am - Coffee, Pastries and Juice
