After my previous article about the strategy that helps you succeed in China mobile game market was posted, there are people asking me about the upcoming GMGC Beijing. While GMGC will be held at China National Convention Center in Beijing very soon in March 16th to 17th, I would like to take the chance to talk about GMGC so that people won’t miss this great opportunity to meet the important influencers to launch your next big game in the juicy China mobile market.
GMGC hosts multiple gaming & technology conferences throughout the year. It is also the fastest growing game event in China and an international platform that gathers industry trends and ideas for people to explore.

To name a few, there were Baidu, EA, Tencent, Samsung, Xiaomi, Gameloft, Google, Paypal, and App Annie shared their minds via this platform.
