“When in doubt – go to important conventions.”, a wise man once said.
Well, maybe he didn’t say exactly this, but it is double valid for us and thus – we packed our bags.
Our first stop was Berlin.
Huawei Eco-Connect Europe, held in Berlin on October 26-27, was full of discussions on how we can enable the successful digital transformation of industries. As a premium partner of Huawei for Europe, we were invited to the official announcement of HiApp Europe – a specialized store for games and applications for Huawei phones.
Our Marketing & Business Development Team had a stand there and the company’s COO Cvetan Rusimov was invited first to the stage for a co-announcement about the game Imperia Online аs the Best Rated Game among the titles in the store as well as the expansion of our partnership with Huawei. The other Bulgarian company, which had the honor to be invited on stage, was MobiSystems.
Next destination was Paris.
Game Connection is the deal making event for the videogame industry. If you’re a developer, a publisher, a distributor or a service provider, if you’re looking to sell your projects or your service, if you’re looking to buy projects or services, you are definitely in the right place.
More than 1490 companies from 60 different countries attended the event, 510 certified buyers, 290+ exhibitors… all looking to do business. And it is at the same time with Paris Games Week (PGW): the trade fair for video games held for the 8th time this year.
Our schedule was busy enough to lead us away from all the temptations Paris offers – we had a meeting with our partners from Russia Destiny Development to discuss our mutual project regarding one of our most famous games – Imperial Hero II.
We also had the pleasure to present two lectures. After her lecture with insights on how to work with influencers at Pocket Gamer Connects in Helsinki, our Head of Marketing & Business Development, Mariela Tzvetanova gave another talk on social media impact at GC: ‘Social Media Manager vs. Community Manager: What’s the Difference?’. On the same event the studio’s COO Cvetan Rusimov shared his insights with the crowd regarding ‘Getting Your App Featured And What’s Next? Ten Hard Lessons Learned!’.
So, without any doubts – we had the best time of our lives in Berlin and Paris.
