EIGHT North West companies associated with the video games industry have signed up to a trade mission to Gamescom, the world’s largest trade fair for interactive games and entertainment.
The cost of the trip to Cologne for the event between August 21-13 has been covered by Enterprise Europe Network North West (EENW) which provides advice on doing business in Europe.
Those attending are: Thumbstar Games and GloLiquid of Liverpool; Runcorn-based d3t; Chester’s Paw Print Games; Manchester-based Tagstar; Nomad Games in Warrington; Manchester-based Flipbook and Liverpool-based publisher Ripstone.
Rodolphe Soulard, senior European business adviser at EENW, said: “The North West is home to a huge creative sector, ranging from start-ups to well-established organisations. EENW is proud to support this sector’s continued growth by raising the profile of regional businesses, increasing sales opportunities and technical cooperation and hopefully creating jobs.
“Gamescom is a key event in the games industry, as all the big names are under one roof. We know that visiting such a show can be time-consuming and expensive for SMEs, that’s why we’ve tailored our package to their needs and pre-arranged one-to-one meetings with potential clients to maximise the value of their visit.”
EENW said the region’s digital and creative sector is one of the largest in Europe.
