Casuality is an independent conference designed and organized by an independent group of casual game industry professionals to address the specific needs of casual game developers, publishers and distributors throughout the world on all delivery methods: download, handheld, retail and mobile. Casuality Europe is one of a series of events designed to facilitate the growth and maturation of the casual gaming industry through education and community collaboration.
"Casuality Europe is a one of a kind opportunity for international developers, publishers and distributors to share information, shape and grow the industry as well as network with business contacts in Europe" said Casuality Managing Director Jessica Tams. "With the rapid globalization of the casual games industry, a European based event is vital to ensure the casual gaming community is able to create and market content to a global consumer base."
Casuality is designed for industry professionals, industry executives, and professionals interested in creating, marketing and distributing games for everyone. The event will allow plenty of opportunities for networking and meetings as well as detailed and informative workshops for those looking to expand their knowledge of casual games.
