Career advice from industry experts

Want to break into the gaming industry but need a little guidance? 

The Academy Live area gives you the tips and cheat codes you need to kick start your career. 

Meet likeminded people and have an extra pair of industry-professional eyes review your CV, application or portfolio at our popular Portfolio Sessions, or attend talks from games industry experts on hand to answer all your questions and offer advice on your next career steps. 

You’ll also be able to speak to a host of awesome publishers looking to recruit; the perfect opportunity to grab an application form and get your foot in the door of the gaming world. 

Check out the Portfolio pages for more information. We’ll also be revealing more details of our Academy Live area on social media, so keep your eyes peeled!

Also, if you’re a school group looking to attend the show, we offer discount tickets and free tickets with teachers who are coming along. If you would like to contact our bookings team they will be able to help you with creating an order. Please email:
