No London Games Festival this year

Trade association UKIE has confirmed that the annual London Games Festival will be taking the year off, but will return next year with a “bigger and bolder group of events” to coincide with the London Olympics. Kirsty Payne, director of London Games Festival, said: “We really want to make London Games Festival 2012 a great destination for interactive entertainment and create a diverse group of events.” UKIE, meanwhile, is to discuss collaborative plans with rival trade association TIGA.
