It was good to see that the games business is getting bit by bit back to normal or at least the way it was before the pandemic. The good old fashion face-to-face business events with the gaming industry peeps – oh, I have missed this indeed 🙂
Since the Nordic Games 2021 needed to be moved from spring to the autumn time, it was a good idea to combine the physical presence of team Apprien with the Huawei Nordics Developer Conference 2021 and Nordics afterparty in Copenhagen. A bunch of loyal and eager Nordic developers from Finland, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Estonia and Poland where present. Also, the Nordic team of Huawei AppGallery and HMS teams were present and organising the first ever Nordic Developers Conference. It was very interesting to meet the different Nordic developers and Huawei teams from AppGallery, HMS-platform development, Huawei Technologies and Huawei Developer Relations units.
In Nordic Games Apprien and PHZ Game Studios teams focused on meetings with publishers and also with investors who are looking possibilities with F2P mobile games. Apprien also met with existing and new customers within the Nordic mobile developers and studios. All and all some 30 interesting meetings where held. The Huawei Developers Conference focused on explaining how to launch games in AppGallery and what are the benefits for developers to start exploring the third global games and apps market place. Also, we got fresh out of the oven (launched last week) presentation about Huawei Cloud services for game developers.
As the pictures show, we had fact packed and fund couple of days in lovely and always inspiring Copenhagen, and I truly think this was something that we all were waiting for. See you in next event for sure! At least Team Apprien and PHZ Game Studios will be in Slush 2021 (December) in Helsinki and in Pocket Games Connect 2022 in London (January). See you there, if not sooner 😉
