Africa Games Week is back from 1 to 3 December at Workshop17 at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
Africa Games Week (AGW) has established itself as the premium business event in Africa for the video game industry, with video game developers, content creators, and industry leaders coming from across Africa and the globe to connect with and grow the African Game Industry. AGW continues to showcase the best of African gaming talent and give them every opportunity to meet with and learn from the best in the business from around the world. Speakers and sponsors for December include Google, Epic Games, Xsolla, Twitch, Focus Entertainment and XBOX, 24 Bit Games, Renderheads, and the French Institute.
“The upcoming edition of Africa Games Week is going to be our best yet,” says Rex Bowden, co-founder, and CEO of Africa Games Week. “This year we are taking the event beyond a conference to an industry- and community-building, knowledge-developing, creative-awakening, a melting pot of Africa's most amazing talent and opportunities for the gaming industry."
Africa Games Week is made up of 4 significant sub-conferences across 4 industry verticals; Games for Change and Mobile Growth Summit are major international US events, Make Games Africa is in its fifth iteration, and Africa StreamCon its second. Each sub-conference will have a variety of specialized speakers and panels, and smaller technical workshops, with one-on-one meetings and networking events scheduled throughout.
Alongside the business conferences, there is a free live exhibition event at Workshop17, where the public will be able to meet and network with those at the 30+ stands; from international brands to rising stars and start-ups from around Africa, to educational institutes offering game-related courses.
