So, the trip to Cologne is booked and we're looking forward to meeting interesting people while we're there..

We'll be at GamesCom from Tuesday to Friday morning on the UK UKIE stand.

Come find us and have a chat!



What's on the Ukie UK Industry Stand at Gamescom 2017?

Once again, Ukie is taking the UK Industry out to Gamescom, the biggest annual European games show.

This is the biggest stand that Ukie have ever managed at Gamescom, with over 80 of the top UK games businesses coming with us to the show to exhibit, meet international partners, demo new games, and represent the best of the UK's games sector. 

The theme

Every year, our Gamescom stand embodies a different Great British theme. For 2017, we’re excited to announce that the theme of our stand will be The Great British Pub.

The stand will include all the usual demo kiosks, meeting tables and private meeting rooms that our exhibitors are used to, but this year it includes the addition of a traditional public house bar right in the middle of the stand. The bar will be stocked for our two networking drinks receptions on Tuesday and Wednesday and will be catered with a pub lunch every day, thanks to lunch sponsors Green Man Gaming.

Due to Koelnmesse’s central and convenient location in Europe, visitors can reach Koelnmesse quickly by car, train, aeroplane and public transport from many cities in Germany and abroad.

There are 2,000 years of history in Cologne, and visitors here will find everything from Roman towers to Gothic churches to fine examples of modern architecture. Cologne has a variety of museums, too—check out the Museum of Applied Art, the Museum Ludwig and, if you have a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Museum. Be forewarned, though—the gift shop at the latter will utterly ruin your diet.

I’ve been a programmer and IT enthusiast for 30 years (since the zx spectrum) and concentrated on AI (neural nets & genetic algorithms) at University. My principle skills are concentrated on Enterprise and Solution Architecture and managing effective developer teams.

I enjoy the mix between technical and business aspects; how technology enables and how that (hopefully) improves profit/EBITDA & reduces cost-per-transaction, the impact upon staff and how to remediate go-live and handover, and risk identification and mitigation. My guiding principle is “Occams Razor” that simplicity is almost always the best option by reducing complexity, time to build, organisational stress and longer term costs.
