Asia’s largest, most anticipated video game event of the year!
HONG KONG /PRNewswire/ — The 11th Annual edition of the Asia Game show is the largest interactive video entertainment tradeshow for the consumer marketplace in Asia showcasing the region’s latest product innovations and the coolest new and upcoming video games. It is Hong Kong’s most anticipated event of the year as more than 470,000 enthusiasts are expected to flood this year’s event.
The 2012 event will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from Dec. 21-24. It is expected to be bigger, better and electrifying. 8000sqm space of a fantasy world with electronic entertainment that is intended to occupy gaming enthusiasts over four days of mind blowing nirvana! Some of Asia’s well known Entertainment Industry Celebrities will be in attendance.
Asia Game Show 2012 is where dreams really do come true, as consumers snapped up nearly HK$30million in products to stimulate all of their video game senses over the four day period, last year. “That number is expected to rise significantly,” said Charlie Greco, Executive Director of MP International; “because this is a whole New Edition of AGS as many more of the top suppliers are increasing their presence in an effort to take advantage of the phenomenal spending power;” he said.
This year, for the first time will be a number of “Indie” Game Developers as the show is supported and endorsed by the Hong Kong Game Development Association (HKGDA) as well as local universities and academic institutions. “We are very excited about our role as the event’s Association Sponsor,” said Ken Chan, Founder and Chairman of HKGDA. “There is a major effort underway to make AGS a more valuable experience for game and technology developers to network and do business, and this is very important for our members. We will have a major presence at this year’s event,” he said.
“Hong Kong’s IVE IT Discipline has also increased its presence at the upcoming event,” says Dr. Andy Lai Senior Lecturer, Department of Information & Communications Technology. “Our institution continues to graduate each year some of the brightest minds in game software and many are seeking electronic entertainment as a career opportunity,” he said.
