In addition to the annual European event in Paris this November, Game Connection again moves east to Shanghai, China June 28-29
Following a record-breaking Game Connection America, which welcomed 1680 attendees from more than 800 companies and 56 different countries for a total of 5527 meetings scheduled through the meeting application, Game Connection returns to Asia this year from June 28-29th at the Pudong Expo in Shanghai, China.
“For the past few years we have focused on North America and Europe, however with the vast market expansion in Asia, we are excited to once again establish Game Connection in China this year,” said Pierre Carde, CEO of Game Connection. “Shanghai is a thriving city, and we look forward to again being the games industry meeting place in the East”.
Game Connection Asia has taken place in previous years (2005, 2006, 2007, notably in Shangai & Tokyo) and revisits China this year to create an international environment where West meets East in business. Exhibitors and attendees can expect the usual B2B successful formula which merges business with conferences. The independent development studios will be given the chance to gain additional exposure through the renowned Selected Projects Program. A set of Master Classes will also be offered, allowing attendees the opportunity to level up with experts in the industry and discuss and learn about the latest innovations in games.
Along with Game Connection Asia, the dates for Game Connection Europe have been announced, as well. Taking place in Paris November 28-30, 2012, Game Connection Europe this year will focus on some new exclusive tracks.
