On the gamescom asia 2021’s Trade Zone side, here is a recap of how the region’s first physical trade event wrapped up.
The gamescom asia 2021 team was pleased to invite Mr Alvin Tan, Minister of State in the Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth and Ministry for Trade and Industry, who graced the event and gave great insights on Singapore’s growing gaming sector, how the nation is carefully planning to bring back MICE events safely, and gamescom asia 2021 being at the forefront of this change of the region. The event is not only piloting the use of a new self-testing kit, gamescom asia 2021 also marks a milestone for MICE events as the pandemic enters the endemic stage.
Day 2 of gamescom asia also concluded the insightful industry sharing sessions that were led by a mix of speakers. Writers, Directors, Composers, Producers and Editors spoke about their experience in working within the gaming industry, as creatives from Call of Duty, Sonic the Hedgehog, Cygames, Assassin’s Creed, and God of War, discussed their careers and how they function within AAA gaming studios.
Simultaneously, gamescom asia 2021’s Mobile Gaming Summit provided viewers with tips and tricks to better understand how to leverage the new social media platforms, data and current trends to maximise the ability of all games.
Social media platforms, TikTok, Snapchat and YouTube, provided attendees with great insights on the best ways brands can leverage these channels to attract the right audience, while international brands, such as Sky Mavis and Zynga, and local studios, like KOEI TECMO, focused on educating their viewers on how best to grow their games and brands through the use of mobile games.
And with that, gamescom asia 2021’s Trade Zone is slowly coming to an end, with its last session, UNconference being virtually broadcasted for all trade attendees on 16 October 2021. There are 2 more days of STUDIO live streams to catch this weekend!
