I was thinking that they'd be some media there as well and we could start with a discussion panel or debate around the industry. Get the experts to tell us where itís going, what to look out for, give us feedback on latest releases and then they can jump into some sort of interactive demonstration.

A pal of mine does it for an organisation called the London Irish Business Society. Pulls a load of Irish folk into an auditorium in London, has a guest speaker and they discuss and debate the Irish economy or whatever the subject might be. He had Willie Walsh (British Airways CEO) as a guest speaker last year and everyone was really keen to meet him. Itís well organised and the Irish Times are always in attendance.

Thatís more of a business networking event. Iím looking more for Magazine Editors, Gaming students, gaming enthusiasts and those from the industry to discuss and share. Gaming companies could use it as a marketing tool with all the magazine/ internet reporters attending (if that were the case) and the audience could use it as a chance to meet and greet, see what the other experts are up to, listen in awe because itís cool or introduce themselves/ their portfolio for advice and tips etc.

Just another forum for like-minded individuals to get together and talk about the things they love Ė games in this case.. not teh p0rn!
