Games Convention Asia

Games Convention Asia is a large computer game, video game, mobile game and online game exhibition and conference held each year in Singapore, and is focused on the Asia-Pacific region.

GC Asia has a games demonstration hall that is open to consumers, and a professional conference running at the same time. The conference is organized as a parallel event to one of the largest such exhibitions in the world, Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, which drew over 200,000 visitors in 2007. Similar events in other countries include E for All in the United States, which registered over 18,000 visitors in 2007, and Tokyo Game Show in Japan, with about 200,000 people attending.

In 2007 the first Games Convention Asia attracted 70,000 people, as well as over 1,000 developers, professioals and press.

Speakers at the Games Convention Developers Conference (GCAC) have included Bob Bates, Don Daglow, Michael de Plater, Jason Della Rocca, Joonmo Kwon, Peter Molyneaux, and Cevat Yerli,
