Nearly 200 videogames companies have now signed up as exhibitors at this year's Game Connection event, taking place in Lyon from November 5-7.
Among those companies are key developers from across Europe, including Arkane Studios, Blitz Games, Daedalic Entertainment, Eutechnyx, GSC Game World, Kuju Entertainment, Rebellion, Team 17 Software, Techland and Zoe Mode.
And organiser Connection Events has now confirmed that the Meetings Calendar is now open, allowing registered attendees to arrange face-to-face meetings with others there.
"I believe that there is a huge opportunity in the online gaming boom to bring console quality products to casual internet players. From distribution partners to middleware operators, Game Connection is the ideal forum for assembling these new era deals", said Darren Jobling, director of business development, at Eutechnyx of the event.
GamesIndustry.biz is once again partnering with Game Connection this year, and will be meeting with selected companies in Lyon.
Additionally, the Nordic Game/GamesIndustry.biz party will take place on the evening of November 6 at the Qboat, 17 Quai Augagneur, Lyon - the party is open to anybody registered with Game Connection who confirms their attendance via the GamesIndustry.biz Network.
The GamesIndustry.biz Network is an industry-only community designed to bring the global videogames business together - more Network events will be announced later in the year.
