If one cultural industry has ridden out the crisis it is the video game industry, which generates 44 billion dollars worldwide. International industry representatives are set to meet in Barcelona, the seventh edition for the Gamelab fair will take place at Las Arenas from 29 June to 1 July, until 2015.
Indeed, the fair serves as an annual showcase for Spanish video games, allowing the national industry to come into contact with international investors, publishers and distributors.
Coming to Barcelona this year we have Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear saga, Cliff Bleszinki, who created Gears of War and Unreal, and Peter Molyneux, one of the most prized designers and the creator of the so-called “God games“.
The fair will also include the presentation of the National Gamelab Video Game Industry Awards, which are awarded by the Academy of Arts and Interactive Sciences.
The B-Hotel is the partner hotel of Las Arenas de Barcelona.
