INTRALOT SUPPORTS THE “GAMING FORUM 2012” ORGANIZED BY AIT & THE BRITISH COUNCIL
Being at the forefront of events dedicated to innovation in the gaming sector, INTRALOT is the gold sponsor of the forthcoming Gaming Forum 2012. This year marks the launch of the initiative, which seeks to become an annual networking event aimed at sharing information, discussing new trends in the gaming sector, and creating a game development community. The Gaming Forum is a two day event co-organized by the Athens Information Technology (AIT) and the British Council on April 27-28, 2012, in Athens, Greece.
INTRALOT is also the proud sponsor of the Popular Choice Award of the Gaming Contest that will be held in the framework of the Gaming Forum. A judging committee comprised of international representatives from the Gaming Industry, the British Council, the Greek gaming community, and academia, will select a short list of gaming ideas which will be open for public voting through social media to determine the winner. The Contest aims to reward the development of gaming ideas and game prototypes in the categories of Entertainment Games, Social Games, and Business & Educational Games.
The two day Gaming Forum will include the Gaming Convention and the Gaming Contest on the first day, and the Gaming Arena on the second day. The Gaming Convention will bring together academia and industry to discuss various topics related to the concepts of gaming and gamification, from industry trends to applications in areas such as education, marketing, branding, and audience engagement. The Gaming Contest will bring together game enthusiasts and game developers in order to facilitate the creation of highly innovative game ideas and working game prototypes. The Forum will close with the Gaming Arena, a festival based on the culture of video games that will feature tournaments with the most popular video games, music challenges and many prizes for participants.
