Show was good. Managed to get through the whole thing in just under two hours and that included our meeting.
Quite a bit on offer but not very much along our lines (which we weren't surprised about). Although we did find a company that we'd been indirectly talking too at the show so introduced ourselves and had a long chat to them about their IP and their plans for it. We are talking to them again directly in a couple of weeks to see if we can work something out game wise.
Also saw another company who have a property I was looking at back in March/April time (Gabby, Andy and Gareth may possibly recall the one) so stopped by and spoke to there UK agents. They were receptive and I'm going to mail them a follow-up to open talks but I don't think the license is available in the form we want for an RPG (as I know another company that tried and were told no about it). It's worth a shot though. The worst that can happen is they say no, in which case at least you tried!
So two hours for meetings/talks with three different companies about three different market known IPs wasn't bad for the price of a travelcard.
Now I have an evening of work ahead of me. The joys! :p
(There were two other companies with properties there that I would *LOVE* to have a crack at but we have a lot on our plates atm anyway, if we were to approach either company about the property I'd want to have a fully thought out and laid out presentation ready for them to look at, and I know one of the heads of licensing for one of the companies in question in the States and would talk to him first before pursuing that particular one if/when the time comes.)
