Event Introduction

Games not only reflect the culture, they also enrich and reinvent the culture. To take your games to the world, what are the considerations for you to win in the multi-cultural market.


•Besides label translation, what else shall be done for localization?

•Does it make sense to partner with the same publisher, distributor and ads platform for the global market?

•What are the operational considerations – tax, content, IP, support, currency, …

SVCWireless and ChinaSF will host some popular game companies from China and US at GDC, 

together with leading publishers, distributors, ads platforms and service providers. Come and experience a cross-border night out, show off your products, lock down your go-to-market partners, and enjoy the multi-cultural food and drink.
