The Icelandic Gaming Industry held a Meetup on the 6th of September 2012 in the usual downtown Reykjavik bar.

In this presentation I talk about how and why IGI was established and explained the role and responsibilities of the organisation. Aðalsteinn Sverrirsson of Íslandsstofa or Promote Iceland also joined explaining how they support the gaming industry.

Finally I also talked about games in general and misconceptions in the media.
