|Casual Connect Europe 2013 - Hamburg February 12 - 14 2013
The Casual Games Association, the international trade organization of the casual games industry, today announced that Casual Connect Europe 2013, the world’s largest mass market games conference series, will take place 12 – 14 February in Hamburg, Germany.
Casual games are designed for everyone, everywhere. They appeal to all types of consumers and can be played on any gaming platform, from computers to game consoles, to handheld game devices and mobile phones, to interactive television. This mass appeal has resulted in exponential growth, capturing consumers who never envisioned themselves as gamers. This widespread success didn’t happen by chance. It happened because the people who love games as much as gamers themselves have continued to work hard to bring high-quality products to a wide audience.
Each year, new hurdles emerge, but we continue to innovate, push the creative and technical barriers, and remain focused on our common objective: delivering an entertaining and engaging experience.
Join us 12 – 14 February 2013 along with over 1700 industry professionals in Hamburg for the seventh Casual Connect in Europe to discuss the future of the games industry.
Conference sessions will cover a wide range of subjects including Browser, MMO and Social games, Mobile (iOS and Android), Social Mobile, Cross-platform, Design and Development and Consumer Marketing. Featured speakers and topics include:
