GAME CONNECTION REACHES 30,000 BUSINESS MEETINGS IN THE LAST THREE YEARS

Lyon, France – February 9, 2012 – Game Connection today announced that more than 30,000 business meetings have been scheduled through its meeting application in the last 3 years.

Data extracted from the Connection Events meeting database reveals a trend that there are more meetings being scheduled each year at Game Connection. This increase is directly related to the efficiency of the online meeting application, which not only allows participants to organize their appointments easily ahead of the show but also to find the ideal partner through the profiling system.

Hailed as the most efficient meeting app in games industry B2B conferences, the Connection Events meeting application is also being utilized by E3 this year to allow participants the ease of use and access that Game Connection attendees have enjoyed for 11 years.

“Our overall goal is to make it as easy as possible for companies to come to Game Connection and make business happen,” said Pierre Carde, CEO of Connection Events.  “Our meeting application has been acclaimed by attendees for years because of its efficiency, and the fact that 30,000 meetings have been scheduled through it in just over 3 years gives testament to the fact that our system is working and business is being done!”

In addition to this Game Connection meeting app milestone, Game Connection America, (taking place in San Francisco March 5-7th), has just confirmed that the list of buyers has risen to 150.
