UOL BoaCompra Executive to Present at Game Developers Conference 2013 in San Francisco

 

GDC San Francisco, CA - March 14, 2013:   UOL BoaCompra, the leader in publishing and monetizing gaming in Latin America, today announced that Julian Migura, director of International Business Development for UOL BoaCompra, will present at the Game Developers Conference 2013 (GDC) taking place March 25-29 in San Francisco. Presenting for the Free to Play Design and Business Summit portion of the conference, Migura will deliver a session entitled “ Latin America - Essential Insights into the Most Vibrant Growth Market in Gaming” to be held on Tuesday, March 26.

Latin America is a highly profitable market for US and European developed free-to-play (F2P) games and is one that many developers strive to enter. Throughout this session, Migura will explore Latin America’s history in gaming and examine why F2P games have become so important in a continent that has not been a major market for traditional gaming models in the past. The conference, now in its 27 th year, features over 400 lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game development topics taught by leading industry experts.

“Many developers with existing F2P games in the United States and Europe are searching for markets that are lucrative, fast growing and hungry for new titles,” said Migura. “This session will highlight key data from our recent Brazilian market research to educate developers on the opportunities available for success within the vast Latin American region. GDC SF is an excellent show and provides a great opportunity to network, and educate US developers and publishers about the monetary F2P potential in LATAM.”.
