Cubicle 7 has managed the London RPG gamer convention Dragonmeet for the last two years. It is the capital’s largest one-day roleplaying, CCG, miniatures and boardgame event.
Today the company announced the Chris Birch of Modiphius and the Music entrepreneur Jonathan Rowlands will take over management for the next event and relaunch the convention for its 15th birthday.
Dominic McDowall, CEO of Cubicle 7, said;
“I love Dragonmeet, but making great games is what Cubicle 7 is about. The success of our games, especially our Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings ranges, means that they need to be our focus and we can’t give Dragonmeet the attention it deserves. It’s been a difficult decision – we are all tremendously fond of the show – but it has made it a lot easier to be handing over to such a talented and experienced team. With Chris and Jonathan, Dragonmeet is in very safe hands, and I can’t wait to see what they have planned!”
Birch and Rowlands are promising a larger event; with more exhibitors, games, tournaments and entertainment. There are four new spaces available in Dragonmeet where the convention takes place and extended opening hours until 11.
Jonathan Rowlands has 40 years experience in music entertainment and recently sold the Bakewell Music Festival after running it for four years. Gamers already know the name Rowlands through his son, Gobion Rowlands, who wrote The Wyld Hunt and works with Angus Abranson with the Delta14 imprint.
Chris Birch has 20 years in events, also in the music industry but more recently has made great strides in the RPG industry with super successful Kickstarters and titles like Achtung! Cthulhu and Mutant Chronicles.
More details are available at Dragonmeet.co.uk – a site which the new management team are also promising to relaunch in June.
