Events, hosts of GIST Gaming Istanbul, Turkey’s new B2B and B2C expo, are granting special support to independent developers from all around the world: GIST 2017, taking place from February 2nd – 5th, 2017, offers a heavily supported Indie area for all new studios wanting to explore the Turkish market. Core of GIST 2017 Indie Area is free exhibition spaces for qualifying studios.
“We love independent game development, from Turkey and all around the world, and we want to support new studios where we can, so we’re giving away free exhibition space”, says Cevher Eryürek, Director GIST at GL Events. “By doing that, we give indies from all around the world the opportunity to build up connections to the Turkish and MENA region, and also to creatively widen their horizons by getting unique insights into local game development.”
The free booths are set up with electricity and internet connection. To qualify, indie studios need to meet certain criteria, including presenting their own creative content and financial independence. A special committee will choose studios that will be invited to exhibit at GIST 2017 from all applications, which can be submitted now at:http://www.gamingistanbul.com/en/indie-submission/ .
From February 2nd – 5th, GIST Gaming Istanbul 2017, Turkey’s new B2B and B2C gaming expo, opens its doors in Istanbul’s ICC International Congress Center, covering over 10,000 sqm of expo grounds directly in Istanbul’s city center. GIST|Developer Conference takes place on February 1st, 2017.
