Why is Smile-Expo Company holding the festival of video game culture WEGAME 3.0?

On April 8-9, “Art-zavod Platforma” in Kyiv will host WEGAME 3.0 dedicated to computer games, popular culture and innovative technologies. This is the third festival organized by Smile-Expo Company.

WEGAME first held in spring 2016 became the event the young audience of the country really needed. From time to time similar events were organized in Kyiv but it was us who managed to bring together all important issues of the industry and make it interesting for both – business segment and young people.

Talking about the history of GameDev events, there were lots of high-quality ones such as DevGAMM and Casual Connect taking place up to 2013-2014. But after well-known events in the country foreign companies lost the interest in holding their conferences and exhibitions in Ukraine and Ukrainian companies weren’t ready to “pick up the baton”.

Cosplay and popular culture festivals are held in Kyiv much more often but most of them aren’t regular and cannot earn trust of the audience. By focusing on high quality we gained trust of visitors who not only waited for WEGAME but also got ready for it in advance.

WEGAME innovation and difference from other festivals of new technological devices lie in its openness to close collaboration between exhibitors and the target audience. This is a wonderful platform for exhibiting, testing the product as well as receiving a constructive feedback.

This year WEGAME 3.0 will open new opportunities for video game developers. Large manufacturers and startup projects will take part in WEGAME AWARDS which will be divided into 10 categories. The purpose of WEGAME AWARDS is not only to attract attention to products and get a particular status for companies but also to improve cooperation between game creators and players.

Our goal is to continue the tradition of uniting gaming and geek community with representatives of the industry business. WEGAME task is to create a convenient and reliable platform for this collaboration.

Except for this, Smile-Expo Company has also launched a series of business events in the gaming sphere – eSport Conference – in capitals of Russia, Ukraine, Poland. These are conferences dedicated to the issues of eSports business.

Moscow hosted the event in December 2016 with next ones scheduled for the end of 2017. Kyiv conference successfully ended on February 22 and Warsaw conference is to take place on March 23.
