Barcelona, May 15th 2014.- PAD (Professional Associated Developers), the largest developers association in Spain with 60 companies, is pleased to announce the I PAD Congress, a networking party, at the Fabrica Moritz Barcelona on June 24 th.

“Since the founding of PAD, the fact of organizing a conference by and for developers was one of its main objectives, which is why we’re thrilled to announce our first I Pad Congress”, said Eva Gaspar, President of PAD. “ A networking party that aims to become an annual event, to serve both as a platform for video game developers to present their latest projects and as a networking opportunity, all full of good atmosphere, shows and music”.

Thus I PAD Congress is presented as the best showcase for the thriving independent video game industry in Spain, providing developers the chance to show their work, exchange quality know-how and interact with other professionals, developers and publishers, national and international, to collaborate and attract investment.

In addition to the showcase of the latest video game of the participants and the exclusive networking party, the I PAD Congress will have workshops and lectures by prominent figures in the industry. Among the starting lineup we find Hironao Kunimitsu, CEO at gumi, one of the largest publishing companies in Japan; and María Alegre, co-founder and CEO of ChartBoost, the largest business enginge for mobile games.

The whole event will be held at the former Fabrica Moritz Barcelona, an unrivalled setting for the indie and collaborative spirit that PAD supports and encourages. The emblematic brewery of the local beer brand in the middle of the city is one of the most popular meeting spots for new talent that drives innovation.

Dajana Dimovska, one of our prominent speakers, KnapNok Games´s CEO and co-founder of the Copenhagen Game Collective, cannot be more accurate when stating that “ If you develop video games you have to go out and share a beer”.
