Event Details


Thursday 21st September 2017

Birmingham B40 1NT

The Investment Summit 2017 is the UK's premier games investment event, with the sole aim to get your game funded! Now in its eighth year, the Investment Summit is taking place in Birmingham as part of the huge EGX games expo on Thursday 21st September 2017. Every ticket gives you access to the Investment Summit talks, an opportunity to meet and pitch to investors PLUS four-day access to EGX Birmingham and the exclusive non-public GamesIndustry Zone on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd September.

The Investment Summit is a real opportunity for you to get your game funded - small-to-medium-sized games companies can discover more about games investment and access to finance in the morning talks, and then meet and pitch to investors, publishers and platform-holders in the afternoon session of the event. At last year's Investment Summit, there were more than 70 formal meetings between investors and games developers.

Investors, sponsors and speakers confirmed already include UK Games Fund, Catalyst Global Interactive, Nintendo of Europe, Green Man Gaming, Sega Europe, All 4 Games, SIE XDev Studio Europe, BFI, Miniclip, Rising Star Games, Mercia Technology, Wales Interactive and Flare Games - with many more to be announced!

Every ticket purchase for the Investment Summit 2017 includes:

  • Two-day access to EGX Birmingham and the exclusive non-public Trade Zone on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd September!
  • The chance to meet investors in our afternoon meeting system and during our networking lunch*
  • Four morning speaker sessions from games industry investors/funders
  • The Games Investment Panel with an opportunity for Q&A
  • Refreshments and lunch included

All games company attendees can download an application form to apply for formal meetings with investors in the GamesIndustry Zone of EGX during the afternoon of the 21st September. Successful developers will be informed of their meetings with investors on Monday 18th September.*

At any time during/after lunch, attendees can access to EGX at The NEC to check out the GamesIndustry Zone, GamesIndustry Career Fair and also play all the latest games on the showfloor at EGX.
