Brazilian Game Developers to Unveil New Talent During Game Connection Europe 2017
Sao Paulo, October 18, 2017 – The Brazilian Game Developers Export Program, an initiative created by the Brazilian Game Developers Association (Abragames) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), is proud to announce today that Brazilian game developers will be represented in full force this year at the Game Connection Europe in Paris, France, from November 1 to November 3, 2017. This year, the Brazilian delegation will be composed of 11 companies representing the best of the Brazilian gaming scene.
The objective of Brazilian companies is to find potential partners, publishers, investors, or to offer their work for hire services.
Abragames and Apex-Brasil are committed to elevate the Brazilian video game industry on an international level to support its local talent and network with potential buyers, publishers, and other business partners. As part of this initiative, the annual Brazilian Independent Games (BIG) festival, taking place in São Paulo, was created 5 years ago and has now flourished to become the largest indie games event in Latin America and the third largest in the world. BIG displays the strength of the Brazilian gaming industry through its exhibit, but also thanks to the festival award competition, which has received 617 submissions from 54 countries this year. BIG Festival has become the main business hub for independent developers in LATAM, featuring keynotes, lectures, and presentations from top players of the global industry.
Simultaneously, a delegation of Abragames executives and representatives will attend Game Connection Europe to network and find potential guests, speakers, keynotes and buyers to bring to BIG Festival 2018. The objective of the Festival is to always have the best global professionals sharing experiences and knowledge with an engaged public. International video game companies interested in knowing more about BIG festival, as well as Brazilian game developers’ services and products, are welcome to contact Eliana Russi ([email protected] ), General Manager of Abragames, to schedule an appointment during Game Connection Europe.
“We are thrilled to attend Game Connection Europe once again, one of the most important industry events in the world for the game sector. We hope our 11 attending companies can make good businesses at GCE in Paris,” declared Eliana Russi, General Manager of Abragames.
The Brazilian Game Developers Association (Abragames) booth can be found in the booths 101, 111, and 112. A full list of businesses participating in the Brazilian delegation can be found below.

The main goals of Abragames are to organize, coordinate, strengthen and promote the Brazilian digital gaming scene through the representation and interlocution of the national and international ecosystem, building an understanding of all elements of our value chain, as well as the promotion of events and partnerships that bring to Brazil the best in the gaming industry.
