July 14, 2016 Leave a comment
The Video Game Bar Association, a non-profit organisation uniting experienced video games industry lawyers, is hosting a second edition of its European Summit on Game Business and Legal Affairs at gamescom again this year. The VGBA European Summit will be held concurrently with gamescom congress on August 18, 2016 at the koelnmesse in Cologne.

The VGBA EuroSummit will follow the same format as the very successful US editions of the VGBA Summit, covering topics of immediate interest to practitioners who have a focus on working with publishers and developers in Europe.

Topics will include discussions on the progress of the EU’s Digital Single Market initiatives and the potential impact of Brexit on the industry. There will also be sessions on recent developments in Privacy law and current legal hot topics in the eSports domain. Of course there will also be time for networking with colleagues from international firms and in-house legal departments, including over bites and drinks at the end of the day.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that the Online.Games.Law blog team will also be participating, and we invite our readers to join us there as well!

As a part of the gamescom congress and gamescom 2016 events, the VGBA European Summit is a great value and easy to register. There are a number of ticketing options available. The complete Summit schedule along with registration information and fees may be found at www.VGBAEuroSummit.org.
