Connections UK Games Fair Contributions

Criteria for Acceptance

A session will be considered for acceptance into the games fair programme if:
  • It is in the serious games and wargames field (as distinct from a recreational game)
  • The game to be presented should include an element of explanation and presentation to acquaint conference attendees with its purpose, design approach, and utility.
  • it will actually be played during the session. Merely demonstrating game components or a sales pitch on a game for sale will not be acceptable.
It can be:
  • In development or partly formed.
  • On any serious subject in the professional space, not just defence & security.
Preference may be given to:
  • Presenters who have not previously presented at a Connections UK Games Fair
  • Games that are open to active participation from conference attendees.
  • Games that are accessible to players new to wargaming
  • First time game designers.
There are usually many expressions of interest in presenting games at the Games Fair and Connections UK has the final word on accepting a game into the programme.

Games Fair Arrangements

If you do present a game you will be allocated space, and as far as possible we will endeavour to meet your space requirements. Connections UK cannot guarantee to provide technology or technical assistance or personnel to assist with the presentation of your game. However we will make every effort to fit your requirements to the space we have available in the Conference venue.

If accepted, the Presenter at the Games Fair is entitled to attend Connections UK free of charge.
