Employing more than 2 million people across the country, employment has increased five times faster than the national average and the sector is forecast to play an even bigger role in the coming years. 

The games industry is one of the fastest growing and most exciting sectors to enter and the North East is one of the UK's major places for games development. 

The creative industries contribute more than £8m an hour to the UK economy, generating more than £70bn a year in total, which out performs all other sectors.
