Events – end of 2011

Between now and the end of the year, we will be attending a number of events across the globe where you can meet with us. And starting as early as this week.


27th of September, Frankfurt – Gameplaces

Diane will be speaking there, specifically on games and investments.


10th to 13th of October, Austin – GDC Online

This is an usual rendez-vous for us as we will be meeting with partners as well as sitting in sessions, checking for the trends of the online space.


7th to 9th of November, Daegu – KGC 2011

I (Thomas) will be speaking at KGC 2011, ahead of the Gstar. I present a general overview of the European market for online games. And (hopefully), it should the opportunity for us to update the aging presentations we have on slideshare on that topic.


10th to 13th of November, Busan – Gstar

We will have a booth in the B2B area of the Gstar. More details on this when we are closer to the date, but you can expect that if you want to meet us, it will be easy.


6th to 8th of december, Paris – Game Connection Europe

Another of our regular haunts, we have just confirmed that we will be there again. The event has moved to Paris (an excellent move in my opinion) and now also has a conference component. If you are not familiar with the event format, just think speed dating between publishers, developers and service providers  of the games industry.

KGC 2009 wrap-up

kgcThe past week in Korea has been very busy for us. We attended the KGC event for the first time this year, and it has been a very nice experience.

Thomas spoke at KGC, presenting not one lecture, but two! Both went very well, with a very attentive audience that was thirsty for knowledge on the European market and the European players.

The presentations are on SlideShare now:.

This presentation is similar to others we’ve done during the year. Some of the numbers have been updated, and as always we have provided additional information from previous iterations. The section on how to enter the European market, and related advice, has been fleshed out more thoroughly.

This is quite a new angle for us. We prepared this lecture at the request of the KGC organizers, and we can honestly say it was a lot of fun to prepare. We’d like to develop it even further, but we hope that in its current form it has enough material to be useful to its intended audience (non-European developers).

As ever, feedback on both presentations is very welcome!

[You may have noticed that those presentations feature a different logo than our previous materials. We'll talk more about that soon, but for now let's just say that we felt the need to move on to an image that's more representative of ICO's spirit.]

In between game industry events

istock_000008775670xsmallThis summer has proved to be very busy for ICO Partners. We attended a good number of events while still working for our different clients for a variety of projects. We went to GC Online in Leipig, to Gamescom in Cologne, had a stealth visit of PAX in Seattle (and left flu-free) and we just got back the GDC Austin in Texas. The travelling is almost over.

Almost.

Next week, both Thomas and Diane will be in Korea. Read the rest of this entry »
