Since 2012, Singapore has been the home for annual Casual Connect Asia that is usually held on May. But for this year, Casual Games Association (CGA) already announced that they will move from Singapore to Shenzhen, China for the Casual Connect Asia 2018.
Organized by CGA with the support of a host partner iDreamSky, Casual Connect is coming to the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area China on Nov 12 to 14, 2018. At Casual Connect Asia 2018, you’ll have unlimited access to meet and create connections with games industry professionals like yourself.
All attendees get access to three days of lectures, official networking parties, and 90 of the world’s best indie games with developers. The venue will also feature a large expo area where you can talk one-on-one with industry-leading companies.
“China is now the world’s biggest game market. Being a co-host of Casual Connect China, our intention is to build the bridge for the international game industry to learn more about Chinese culture and bring in more high-quality content for the Chinese market,” said Michael Chen, CEO of iDreamSky according to the official press release.
Indie Prize is ready to find the best game from the region
More than 1,500 developers apply to Indie Prize during the year and judges from throughout the games industry select the most promising games to participate at international Indie Prize showcases during Casual Connect conferences.
