London trade show cancelled

London trade show nixed

This year's Games Market Europe show, scheduled for September 6th and 7th in north London, has been cancelled due to weak exhibitor interest. The event was launched just last year, and at the time was attended by Nintendo, Ubisoft, Vivendi, Codemasters, and Buena Vista. MCV suggests that the 2006 cancellation is attributable in part to fights between tradeshow groups. The irony is that the death of E3 could have given the GME a sizable shot in the arm, but it may be that the Leipzig Games Convention has already filled Europe's needs. Update: GamesIndustry.biz informs us that the show may come back in a revised format in 2007.
