Just as the UK gaming community is getting ready for ukexpo, comes the news that our good friends from Modiphius and especially Chris Birch are taking over the reigns. Here is the official release:
Modiphius' Chris Birch and Jonathan Rowlands take over the "UK's friendliest gaming event" This year, as Dragonmeet gears up to celebrate its 15th birthday on Saturday 15th December at Kensington Town Hall, a new management team has been announced. Chris Birch, the founder of Modiphius Entertainment and long time music business entrepreneur Jonathan Rowlands have acquired the much loved convention from previous owners Cubicle 7 Entertainment.
"I love Dragonmeet," said Dominic McDowall, CEO of Cubicle 7, "but making great games is what Cubicle 7 is about. The success of our games, especially our Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings ranges, means that they need to be our focus and we can't give Dragonmeet the attention it deserves. It's been a difficult decision - we are all tremendously fond of the show - but it has made it a lot easier to be handing over to such a talented and experienced team. With Chris and Jonathan, Dragonmeet is in very safe hands, and I can't wait to see what they have planned!"
Together, Chris and Jonathan plan a revamp of the London based tabletop games convention promising 'more exhibitors, more games, more tournaments and more entertainment'. Expanding in to four new spaces in the Kensington Town Hall, and extending the opening hours till 11pm the team are specifically introducing more boardgames, tournaments, miniature wargames, cosplay and a programme of evening entertainment.
