Peter Barlow talks about eGames expo

eGames & Entertainment Expo

Peter Barlow is the director of CyberActive Media who is organising the upcoming eGames Expo in Melbourne from November 17-19, 2006. I missed the last opportunity to talk to him at the Atomic Live Forum, so I couldn’t miss out this second opportunity to talk to him about eGames.

Today, I had a chance to join a group of strangers to meet with Peter in a very noisy cafe in Melbourne. Of course, with my handy iriver Clix, I recorded the whole conversation for blackmailing purposes in the immediate future, and to share with the rest of you what Peter had to say.

It was an extremely interesting and insightful conversation (although it was mainly Peter talking) about planning and executing a large-scale industry-first exhibition like this.

The things he talks about include:

  • The website
  • Press Day
  • Keynote arrangements
  • Industry panel
  • Mass-market gaming
  • eSport
