About the Trade Conference

The Asia Pacific is the biggest region by game revenues, with China, Japan and South Korea leading the pack.

The region also includes the fastest-growing games market in the world —Southeast Asia (SEA).

According to a recent Newzoo Global Games Market Report, SEA’s games market will generate $4.3 billion in revenue annually, up +13.9% year-on-year. Driven by growing disposable income and internet user penetration, SEA is primed for continued growth in the next five years.

However, to navigate this high-potential market, game developers and publishers must first grasp SEA’s dynamism and diversity, where each country has its own unique culture, game preferences and spending behaviours.

gamescom asia assembles a remarkable line-up of speakers and elites in the digital gaming industry in a two-day conference to share valuable insights about navigating this exciting region and to discuss the future of gaming.

Covering 4 main tracks, DEV, BIZ & TECH, ESPORTS and INDIE, you will learn the latest in game design, marketing, next-gen technologies, esports, monetisation and funding strategies, market intelligence & research, and more. Join the discussion and be inspired to explore new horizons for your next project.
