Trade Mission to Games Developers’ Conference
Date Posted: January 9, 2015
Northern Ireland Screen is seeking to lead a Trade Mission of Northern Ireland games developers to the Games Developers’ Conference, the world’s largest and longest-running professionals-only games industry event, which takes place in San Francisco from 2nd – 6th March 2015.
As part of its overall remit to help grow a dynamic and sustainable screen industry in Northern Ireland, our objective through this targeted intervention is to help the participants further their skills in this arena, inform them of industry standards and requirements and network with peers and contacts, so they can compete effectively within the global industry.
It is Northern Ireland Screen’s intention to be part of the UKIE Stand at the conference and as part of our package, we are able to offer a limited number of free registrations as part of this Trade Mission.
Due to the high costs involved in attending the conference in San Francisco, Northern Ireland Screen is able to offer only one person from each company financial assistance with travel, accommodation, subsistence and free accreditation. Details of how to avail of the free registration will be supplied to successful applicants, as well as advice on dates to attend and news of a networking event.
There are strict eligibility criteria in place for trade missions, for which you must supply evidence. Full Trade Missions general guidelines are available to download from the Marketing and Information section of the website. Please read these guidelines before you decide to apply. In addition, please read the supplemental eligibility criteria on the application form.
How to apply
Please ensure you have read and understood the general guidelines for Trade Missions, and in particular, the supplemental criteria on the application form. Please download and complete the application form and email it to Marketing Departmentas soon as possible.

Trade Missions are made possible through the Northern Ireland Screen Marketing Department budget, supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
