The sun was shining, the weather was glorious and the rooftop terrace delightfully airy. No, we’re not talking about an impromptu trip to the South of France; we’re talking about the fantastic afternoon we had in Helsinki on Monday 9th May at Meet the Mobile Gaming Experts.
Sponsored by Pollen VC, our experts from Armada Interactive, EA Mobile, NeoGames Finland and Frogmind spent their time chatting with 50 people from across the Finnish games industry about their area of interest. Making new connections and solidifying old ones over decent amounts of wine and beer, it proved to be the perfect way to kick off another busy week in the industry.
While it’d be hard to pick out a single topic that dominated the day, we found that people were regularly discussing:
- The rise of eSports on mobile and how local hero Supercell is driving that with its latest hit Clash Royale.
- The importance of the Asian market to the future growth of the industry, which is particularly relevant to Helsinki and its status as a travel hub of choice for many travelling to Europe from the East.
- To what extent Mobile VR will play a role in driving the adoption of VR as a whole, how long consumer acceptance will take and whether it’ll be games or other applications that will tip consumers into parting with their money.
And that’s about it from this wonderful event. If you’re disappointed to have missed out on this event, or are interested in making another Bright Mavericks event in the future, then never fear – we have more coming in the very near future indeed – see our Events Page above
