Bright Mavericks is back with a Brexit special of Meet the Business Experts Roundtable, giving you the chance to ask experts about one of the big challenges of our time in a friendly environment.
Sponsored by Plus Accounting, experts in Games Tax Relief, and Coffin Mew, an experienced law firm who has represented gaming clients such as Climax Studios, Meet the Business Experts hopes to help you negotiate both the political and business landscape games businesses live in.
Opening at 3pm with two hours of one to one surgeries, where you can meet one on one to discuss this issue, the roundtable event featuring 40 guests will start at 5pm.
Giving you the chance to sit with other attendees and our experts for 20 minutes at a time to discuss their area of expertise, Meet the Gaming Business Experts is an informal space to share ideas and talk out problems.
And with plenty of drinks and nibbles available (there's even rumours of pie and mash), we hope that we can balance the Brexit chatter with some much-needed light relief too.
So who will you be meeting? At the moment, we can confirm the following experts will be in attendance:
• Host and Media Outreach - George Osborn, Freelance Journalist and Founder of Mobile Mavericks
