On the 4th December the annual Israeli game conference - GameIS 2014 was held in Tel Aviv.
The Israeli game industry is continuously growing, and it already features leading companies such as Plarium, Playtika, SideKick, Funtactix, TabTale and more.
The conference was organized by GameIS, a non profit organization which brings together Israeli game companies and developers. It is due to the hard work of many volunteers that the conference can be annually held. Each year the conference takes place in December, and it is sponsored by both Israeli and international leading game companies.
The conference started with opening words by Nir Miretzky, Chairman Of The Board of GameIS, followed by welcoming notes by a member of the Israeli minister of economy who support the industry. After that speakers from Playtika, Plarium, TabTale and Amazon welcomed the audience.
After a short break, the conference split into three tracks covering different topics - local industry, revenue vs good will and technology. After a lunch break which was sponsored by the Google Cloud Platform Live, there were additional three tracks - global industry, creative and game services.
After a short coffee break the audience gathered again to have a keynote track, featuring a session about the blue ocean between casual and hardcore gamers, a lecture by the creator of Imperia online by UbiSoft, and a chat with David Helgason, the founder of UNITY, the popular game development engine.
The different sessions featuring leading members of the industry, from companies such as Wooga Games, UbiSoft, Amazon, Playtika, Google, Plarium, AMD and many more.
The conference ended with a great party in Tel Aviv, sponsored by Spin Master, PlayBuzz and GameIS. Great people,music and fun - what a great way to end the conference, with hopes to an even better conference in GameIS 2015.
