Why I’ve shelved any hope of GB Live! #NextGenSkills

For many reasons I’ve now decided to shelve any hope of running Games Britannia Live! in Sheffield next year. There has been virtually zero support from agencies and institutions within Sheffield and a matching interest from the games industry and trade bodies to support and make something happen in the north.

I’ve have brilliant support from people wanting to come along and do amazing things at the event (and I’ll write and thank them personally), but without a drop of funding to support expenses it just isn’t possible.

When a very respected and senior member of the games industry says “games pubs will not send teams to Sheffield sadly. No matter what we think.” you have to admit defeat.
