Imperia Online is sending off one of the richest and busiest months event-wise in its history.
When, in the future, someone asks us: “What did you do 10 years ago?”, we will immediately answer: “We had an amazing May!”
One of our stops this month was Nordic Game 2018, where our COO, Cvetan Rusimov joined the Speakers, led a workshop for the participants at Discovery Contest and took part in the Nordic Game Awards Jury between 22nd and 25th of May.
At the same time our studio participated in Casual Connect, London, because Game of Emperors and Codename: Phantom (developed by Red Fire Games, a startup formed in the summer of 2017 as an internal game dev team at Imperia Online) were both nominated in the category “Indie Prize” and, you know – we have no other choice, but to be present with Premium Developer Showcase & Meeting Tables.
We met over 100 leaders in established and emerging markets of the games industry – covering game design, esports, social casino, funding, next-generation technology and best practices and listened to established speakers from the industry’s big names like Oculus VR, Ubisoft, Square Enix and Wargaming.
We saved the best one for the end, of course – Imperia Online’s co-owner Dobroslav Dimitrov was elected as the new chairman of BASSCOM (Bulgarian Association of Software Companies), which is the most important branch organization in Bulgaria. Mr. Dimitrov’s main goal as the association’s new leader will be to encourage the development of adequate education of all the young people in Bulgaria, who want to work in the IT industry.
So, yes – May 2018 was indeed good to us.
