Unreal Engine on board for UKIE's Liverpool games showcase

As part of Liverpool's inaugural Festival for Business, trade association UKIE is hosting a free two-day games expo to highlight the best of the country's gaming talent.

Taking place on 15-16 July, the games showcase will include networking opportunities, sessions on international business for the games sector, information on accessing the UK's new Games Tax Relief and a drinks reception.

Bolstering the event is the news Unreal Engine has signed up as a lead sponsor, with members of the Epic team on hand to discuss the engine's new £19 subscription model.

'Open for business'

"This Festival aims to shine an international spotlight on the whole of the UK. We are delighted to have Unreal Engine as the headline sponsor for the showcase," explained UKIE CEO Dr Jo Twist.

"They add to the international flavour of the event as well as our strong line-up of talented and creative exhibitors. This event is a chance for the UK and games businesses to show off their innovation and creativity to an international audience, on home turf.”

Exhibitors already include a range of local and national players, including Lamplight Studios, Replay Events, Cool Game Arcade, Carbon Digital, Toxic Games and Boneloaf, and is sponsored by Unreal Engine and PEER1 Hosting.

It's free to go along, although you do need to register first, and there's still room to exhibit or sponsor the event.
