2009 LOGIN Conference to Launch with Opening Remarks from ChinaJoy Founder


SEATTLE, Washington, May 5, 2009 - Evergreen Events has traditionally inaugurated the LOGIN Conference with both energy and grace by hosting a welcome reception for attendees. This year, the conference will kick off on Monday, May 11th, with a Welcome Ceremony and Session Preview before launching into the Opening Reception. Evergreen Events is honored to distinguish the evening with welcoming remarks being offered by Han Zhihai, General Manager of the Howell International Trade Fair Ltd. The LOGIN Session Preview will be hosted by Jay Moore, Director of Business Development for BitRaider, and will feature a fast-paced sneak peek of each of LOGIN's sixty-two information-packed sessions.

Mr. Han Zhihai, Secretary General of China Digital Entertainment Expo&Conference (ChinaJoy) Organizing Committee, Vice Secretary General of China Game Publishers Association(CGPA), General Manager of Howell International Trade Fair Ltd., has been engaged in large-scale international expos and conference organizing activities for more than ten years, and is a professional that has rich experience in organizing, planning and managing international expos, conferences and forums. Mr. Han had successfully planned a series of international influential expos, conferences and expositions.

In 2001, China Digital Entertainment Expo&Conference received approval by related government administration agencies in the Chinese game industry, and organization work was started by Howell International Trade Fair Ltd. After nearly two years' preparation, Howell successfully completed all the groundwork and held the 1st ChinaJoy in 2003.

In the subsequent two years, Mr. Han Zhihai's team adapted ChinaJoy to further match the developing Chinese game industry by exchanging ideas and experiences with well known international expo organizations on planning, managing and organizing aspects. China Digital Entertainment Expo&Conference has grown rapidly in both size and influence worldwide in a very short time. At present, ChinaJoy has reached a high-level in its exhibition scale, social influence, effectiveness, and number of visitors; and has become the world's largest digital entertainment expo. Meanwhile, other events organized by Howell, such as China Digital Entertainment Summit Forum, China Game Developers Conference, ChinaJoy Cosplay Carnival, Golden Plume Game Award, E-Competition have drawn attention at home and abroad. Howell International Trade Fair Ltd has successfully extended ChinaJoy to a series of events over six months, expanded ChinaJoy's social influence, established its brand both at home and abroad, and achieved the government management department's goal to create a platform for exchanging experience in product promotion and marketing, and to play a positive role in promoting development of the national game industry.

"It is my great honor to join in partnership with Evergreen Events and I expect LOGIN to become a gateway for Chinese game companies into the world market and to lead overseas publishers and developers into the booming online game market in China. We are open and wish to make friends worldwide." said Mr. Han Zhihai.

"We are gratified to not only have ChinaJoy as our event partner, but also extremely pleased to have Mr. Han Zhihai offer introductory remarks at the opening night ceremonies," said Peter Freese, Conference Director for LOGIN 2009.
