Games Convention Online 2010 Dated
The second Games Convention Online event will be held in Leipzig, Germany from July 8–11, 2010, organiser Leipziger Messe has announced.
The browser, client and mobile games fair will feature an extra day this year to accommodate requests from trade visitors.
"The extra day is intended to give business customers more scope and time to initiate and conclude business deals and for their business matching and networking activities,” said Silvana Kürschner, global strategy director of GC Global. "This is our response to the specific request of the industry which at the launch event had to deal with a large number of business talks in the shortest possible time.”
Over 43,000 people attended the first Games Convention Online event, according to Leipziger Messe. The fair featured 74 exhibitors showcasing 150 games, and much of its content was made available online, attracting 500,000 visitors to the events website.
Leipziger Messe switched its focus to Games Convention Online earlier this year following the cancellation of the 2009 Games Convention.
