This year’s gamescom asia Games Market Bootcamp will feature an in-person conference as well as be streamed online, being held in Singapore.
The event will be held on the 30th November, at Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre and broadcast online at the same time for viewers across the globe. The live segment will be limited to 120 attendees and open only to a Singapore-based audience.
“gamescom asia’s Games Market Bootcamp will add even more excitement to the Singapore Media Festival (SMF) ecosystem, further entrenching Singapore as the regional hub for gaming developers, marketers, and strategists to gather, connect, and collaborate. I look forward to working with gamescom asia to grow Singapore’s vibrant media and gaming ecosystem, and providing a springboard towards bigger opportunities for gaming creatives in this region,” says Mr Howie Lau, Assistant Chief Executive, Media and Innovation, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).
The event will feature talks about both Singapore’s place in the regional Game Industry, as well as speakers from various key players such as Riot Games, Newzoo and Singapore Games Association (SGGA).
Those worried about the ongoing pandemic can also rest easy, as representatives from gamescom Asia had this to say:
“That we have been given concession is a positive step for the videogames and events industries in reopening opportunities and stimulating Singapore’s recovery. The health and safety of our attendees, vendors and staff are our top priorities and we will adhere strictly to the required regulations for in-person events,” – Mr Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director, Koelnmesse Pte Ltd.
Avid enjoyer of games that sit about as far away from mainstream as possible. Also a proud UWE graduate with a degree in Media and Journalism, along with a TOA Diploma in Digital Animation.
In that spirit, I enjoy- Soulsbornes, tabletop gaming (Warhammer 40K), Fighting games, and Character Action games.
I also believe in the old adage: "I dig giant robots, you dig giant robots, we dig giant robots, chicks dig giant robots. Nice".
