The team behind the hugely successful Mobile Games Forum (MGF) today announced that London Mobile Games Week 2016 is now open for registrations.

Repeating the formula of last years inaugural London Games Week, companies of any size in the mobile games sector are once again invited to register and host their own event. The first London Mobile Games Week saw over 3,000 people attending events from seminars and workshops to networking drinks and advice surgeries – all organised and hosted by companies looking to engage with London and the UK’s vibrant mobile games industry.

Any company looking to get involved should go to https://www.londonmobilegamesweek.com/ where they can find full information on how to host and market their event.

Taking place from 18-22 January 2016, London Mobile Games Week is both a celebration of the creative and coding talent which calls the city home, as well as being a shop window for UK companies as they compete for a slice of the growing global market for mobile games. Although mobile gaming is still a relatively young sector it has quickly become a significant slice of the £1.72 billion that the UK games industry contributes to the British economy every year. London Mobile Games Week 2016 will once again be held in partnership with London & Partners, the Mayor’s promotional company for London, and supported by trade bodies UKIE and TIGA.

Gordon Innes, Chief Executive of London & Partners, the Mayor’s official promotional company has said:

“The UK’s games industry is the largest in Europe and London is home to some of the world’s fastest growing games companies. So I’m delighted to welcome Mobile Games Week back to the Capital. London’s tech sector is buzzing and it’s important we support initiatives like this to encourage growth and investment across the sector.”

Industry associations, mobile games studios and companies involved in any aspect of the creation of mobile games will be able to create and host their own independent events under the London Mobile Games Week banner, which will be free to attend and listed on http://www.londonmobilegamesweek.com.

Commenting on the event, Will Robinson of London Mobile Games Week organisers OsneyMedia, said: “The success of the 2015 event really underscored London’s place as a centre of mobile gaming talent. We’re confident that this year’s event will be even bigger as more and more companies in this incredibly vibrant sector embrace the chance to network and share information with fellow professionals.”
