VEC Celebrates Vancouver’s Past and Future in Mobile Games in London

The Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) wrapped up a successful trip to London for the Pocket Gamer Connects conference, attended by 1,500 developers, media, top-level investors, triple-A publishers and others from the entire mobile games ecosystem.

During the event, the VEC matched Vancouver companies – some of whom had the opportunity to pitch their games – with high level investors and publishers. We also discussed Vancouver’s three-decade game history in a key note address, and held a panel about the city’s bright future in games, which will include the development of locally owned IP.

The High Commission of Canada also hosted a reception for the Vancouver delegation, which included global C-level executives, industry leaders, government and press, and Vancouver-based Roadhouse Interactive announced the launch of its much celebrated Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast game.
