Press Conference with CEO Khaled Helioui – The New Bigpoint: Review and Outlook
Khaled Helioui, Bigpoint’s CEO since 2013, will also hold a special press conference to present their new corporate strategy, which was developed over the last year. With 350 million registered players and more than 400 employees, Bigpoint remains one of the largest and most successful game companies—not just in Germany but in the entire world. Helioui will discuss how the company plans to preserve and build upon that success, what their playercentric corporate philosophy looks like, and what their latest plans are on August 5th at 11 o’clock in the Congress Centre North. Brief product presentations on the spotlighted online games Shards of War and Drakensang Online will round out the talk.
