About two years ago around the time, I started my patreon (https://www.patreon.com/Noaksey) I vowed I would have more events available for game developers and most of all I would do whatever it took to make it free to demo game at these show. I even went as far as to offer a goal where if I could raise £4,500 I would run an Indie event with that in mind.
Unfortunately, my patreon hasn’t seen many backers and so instead of blaming everyone else I got off my arse and went out to find locations, events where I could find this space and I won’t lie everyone I spoke to wanted at least £10 – 15k for an area for this to happen.
so I set my site at upcoming events, new events and found Fanzone Events, there were running a Comic Con in my home town of Reading and so I approached them.
Cut a lengthy negotiation short I have found the space I was looking for.
For every developer that signs up and comes along, you will get;
- Free space
- Free refreshments
- A green room
- The ability to sell your games POS at your stand
And so comes to the hard part and where I need the most help I have these few events to fill
Guildford Comic Con – 2nd – 3rd September (Sign up TBC)
Bath Comic Con – 17th March 2018 (Sign Up TBC)
and likely more to come
