GCA 2007 Singapore's First International Showcase

The very first GCA Games Convention Asia will be held in Singapore from 7–9 September 2007. The Leipzig Fair, the organiser of GC (Games Convention) – Europe's biggest show in the industry – has granted Singaporean organisers CEMS (Conference & Exhibition Management Services Pte Ltd) the right to use the name 'Games Convention'.

GCA Games Convention Asia will be the only exhibition in the region to reflect the trends of the rapidly expanding Asian electronic games market. As well as showcasing the latest computer games and hardware, it will also feature entertaining information, media education and dazzling events for the general public. The organisers expect about 200 exhibitors from the Asia–Pacific region – mainly China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and India – to take part in the exhibition's debut. Moreover, the show is set to draw more than 100, 000 visitors from Singapore and the neighbouring region, including 5, 000 trade visitors. The organisers' aim is to firmly establish what will be the Asia–Pacific region's biggest exhibition devoted to digital media, computer games, entertainment and educational software as well as hardware. The venue will be the Suntec International Convention & Business Centre in the country's capital Singapore.

GCA Games Convention Asia will be officially supported by the EDB (Economic Development Board, which spearheads economic growth in Singapore), IDA (Infocomm Development Authority, the country's IT and telecoms agency), MDA (Media Development Authority), SECB (Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau) and SiTF (Singapore infocomm Technology Federation) along with leading Singaporean business organisations such as the DMC (Digital Media Chapter), GXA (Games eXchange Alliance) and SGGA (Singapore Gamers' Association).

In terms of visitors, GCA Games Convention Asia 2007 is designed to appeal to trade visitors and professional developers on the one hand, and numerous fans of computer games on the other. Its main pillars are as follows: 1. The exhibition. 2. GCA Business Centre. 3. Games Developer Asia Conference. 4. GCA 2007 Cyber Games Competition.
