Tandem Events, organisers of Europe’s leading video games developer conference Develop:Brighton, announced Minster for Culture and the Digital Economy, Ed Vaizey MP, will address attendees on Wednesday 15 July.
Speaking directly after the opening keynote at 10.30am, Vaizey MP will deliver a speech on his department’s outlook for the video games industry in the United Kingdom.
Ed Vaizey MP first attended Develop:Brighton in 2010 and will look back on what has changed in terms of policy over that time period, how tax credits will affect the industry and his ambition for the next five year while in office.
Appointed Minister of State at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, with responsibility for digital industries on 15 July 2014, Ed Vaizey MP was first elected as the MP for Wantage in 2005. He was re-elected in 2010, and May 7 2015.
