By Febrianto Nur Anwari

This year’s event will offer something new!

After being successfully held in two different cities (Surabaya and Jakarta) last year, BEKRAF Game Prime 2017 is ready to offer something new this year. BEKRAF Game Prime 2017 will last for three days in Jakarta. This event is not only ready to be the biggest Business to Business (B2B) event, but also Business to Consumer (B2C) that will bring in thousands of people to play games all day long!

Game Prime 2017 is the evolution of Game Developers Gathering (GDG) that is held annually and it becomes the gathering place for all Indonesian game industry’s stakeholders. This three-day event will offer a new format that has never been introduced before. The event will be started by B2B day in which all local and international game industry’s stakeholders are gathered to transfer their knowledge and build networks. Then it will be followed by two days of B2C event that brings up purely exhibition concept as it will be a playground for everyone.bekraf game prime 2017

Game Prime 2017 is the biggest collaboration project between Badan Ekonomi Kreatif (BEKRAF) Indonesia, Duniaku Network, and Asosiasi Game Indonesia (AGI). This event is also supported by Toge Productions, Dicoding, Touchten Games, Agate Studio, Own Games and Mojiken Studio.

The B2B event will be held on July 27 at Ayana Hotel Ballroom, Jakarta while the B2C event will be held on July 29 and 30 at Kartika Expo, Balai Kartini Jakarta.

Aiming to be one of the biggest industry game events in South East Asia, the B2B and B2C concept of this event is inviting some of the international industry game’s stakeholders. There will be sharing sessions to inform and inspire local game developers led by local and international speakers, and local game developers that have successfully collaborated with international game studios.

Then there are B2C days that will be held for 2 days straight, carrying the exhibition concept “playing games all day long”. The local game industry’s stakeholders can show off their creation to the attendees, so it can be enjoyed by them. On top of that, there will be other entertaining items that they can enjoy such as VR, AR, Board Games, Toys, Artist Alley and some eSport competitions. This B2C event will be attended by big international companies, too!

Additionally, BEKRAF Game Prime 2017 will be dedicated to the local developers as a form of appreciation for their effort to accelerate the game industry.

With the theme “The Next Big Thing in Game Industry,” hopefully BEKRAF Game Prime 2017 can give a new insight for the local game industry’s stakeholders. It can be done by having discussions with the experienced international game industry’s stakeholders who have developed a more steady game industry. Also, this event will give a chance for local game industry’s stakeholders to display their creation so it can be enjoyed by the mainstream market.

“I believe the game industry ecosystem is like a puzzle,” said Robi Baskoro, General Coordinator of BEKRAF Game Prime 2017. “BEKRAF Game Prime 2017 is one of its piece that lies on the edge and helps to shape the final picture in the future,” he continued.
