Mobile World Congress-2008

The GSM Association and the International Mobile Gaming Awards announced an agreement to join forces at this year's Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, 11-14 February 2008 to promote the development of the mobile gaming sector. The GSMA will endorse and promote the established International Mobile Gaming Awards, the largest mobile gaming awards programme which is aimed at professional and non-professional developers of unpublished mobile games. The GSMA will also facilitate the IMGA in hosting their annual Awards ceremony, held on Monday February 11 in the Mobile Entertainment & Content Zone within the Congress.

The GSMA acknowledges that mobile gaming helps drive creativity and innovation and adds value to the industry and to customers. And the IMGA's annual Awards ceremony at the Mobile World Congress will provide an invaluable platform for both small and large developers, hoping to publish new games, with the opportunity to get the level of exposure they need in front of senior executives from both handset manufacturers and mobile operators attending the event.

"We are delighted to partner with the IMGA to align these two Awards programmes and to showcase some of the most innovative, published and unpublished mobile games at the world's biggest mobile event, " said Bill Gajda, Chief Commercial Officer at the GSMA.

"The IMGA brings an unrivalled track record and credibility to the Congress along with a significant community of games developers to showcase mobile games to the broader industry. We're also excited at the prospect of working on future projects and events that will help drive innovation in this very fast moving sector."

The GSMA's Global Mobile Awards will take place on Tuesday 12th February and the IMGA Awards will take place on Monday 11th February at the Mobile World Congress 2008 in Barcelona.
