On 24 September, the EU SME Centre and its partner China Britain Business Council successfully held the Europe-China Gaming and E-sports Industry Connect.
This purpose of the event was to help European gaming & e-sports companies to understand the requirements, directions and needs of the Chinese gaming & e-sports market, and to connect with China’s biggest players in the sector, by facilitating contacts and exchanges.
Specifically, the event was divided in two parts:
- Presentations on the European and Chinese gaming & e-sports markets, including two specific roundtable discussions on various regulatory and market aspects. During this part, the “China-Europe Game Industry Development Report (2021)” was released by Entbrains – and available for download on our website here
