The only conference in ANZ to tackle the business side of the games industry will have MCV Pacific as a media supporter this year.
Dominic Patterson, Director of Connect Events, said: “We are delighted to be working with MCV Pacific for this year’s Gametech Conference. Our partnership reinforces the growing need to focus on the business side of gaming, uniting the various groups that make up the industry.”
Guy Blomberg, Marketing and Ad Sales Manager at MCV, added: “Gametech is the one event in the calendar year which provides a forum for discussion of high end business in the videogames industry. It is precisely the kind of event our territory needs, and will be a must for any serious business operating in the Australia / New Zealand region.”
