The Investment Summit is going digital on Thursday 28th May with Event Sponsor Xsolla. The world's premier games investment event has previously taken place in Seattle, Boston and London, and now invites the entire world to take part in our first ever virtual conference and meeting event. 

The Investment Summit is FREE for games developers, publishers, platform-holders and investors. There is a paid ticket for service companies to access the event. Each ticket gives you access to the Investment Summit meeting system (run by MeetToMatch), all the talks, and the GamesIndustry.quiz event.

The objective is the same: to get your game funded. Featuring games studios, publishers and investors from Australia, US, Europe and around the globe, the event includes access to the live talks (all of which will be recorded so you can access them at your convenience throughout the day) and the chance to apply for and secure one-to-one meetings via our online meeting system with publishers, platform-holders and investors. At last year's Investment Summits, there were more than 1000 formal meetings between investors and games developers.

All ticket-holders can also take part in the GamesIndustry.quiz, a fun online live quiz delivered by our resident quiz master, James Batchelor.

150+ investors, publishers, platform-holders and speakers already confirmed include: Ubisoft, Team17, Electronic Arts, Kickstarter, Oculus, Humble Bundle, Valve, Kowloon Nights, Fellow Traveller, GamesCo London, MRGV, Bossa Studios, ID@Xbox, Sold Out, PlayStack, Galaxy Digital, Animal Kingdom, WINGS, Square Enix Collective, Wired Productions,, 11 Bit Studios, Nintendo, Those Awesome Guys, Snail Games USA, Digital Extremes, Miniclip, Curve Digital, Gearbox Publishing, tinyBuild, Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, Makers Fund, The Irregular Corporation, Xsolla and more on the way...
