Global Games Summit Tokyo 2016 Organised by the Mobile Contents Forum of Japan

The Mobile Contents Forum (MCF) is planning to hold a Global Games Summit Tokyo, which will consist of pitch sessions, one-to-one business meetings and a networking party, all in the lead up to the Tokyo Game Show 2016.

Many representatives from the international games industry will visit the show.

MCF is eager to use the opportunity to further promote the games industry, connecting Japanese and international games companies as we have already done with companies from Finland, France, Canada and the UK.

The event will be a great opportunity to connect with global key players, and we are sure it will be a wonderful occasion to show off cutting-edge technologies and ideas for games.

The event will be held at the office of GungHo Online Entertainment Inc. which is one of the largest games developers in the world.

The details of the event are as follows:

Date: Wednesday 14 September 2016, 13:00-17:00

Place: Conference room at GungHo Online Entertainment Inc. in Tokyo (http://www.gungho.co.jp/english/company/access.html)

NB: MCF will select 16 companies for the pitch session.  Those who are not selected will still have the chance to participate in the event by having demonstration space to show their games via computer and to hold business meetings with Japanese companies at the venue.  All guests will be invited to then attend the networking party afterwards.
