The organizers of the fifth edition of the Game Connection, a business convention gathering video game developers and publishers, have announced that it will take place at the Lyon Palais des Congrès (Lyon Convention Centre) in France on December 5th, 6th, and 7th 2005. In addition, for the first time in Europe, the Game Connection is presenting a one-day long Serious Games Summit to address the professional application of video games to areas such as the military, health, training, safety and security, and more. “The French industry is still in the race worldwide. The Game Connection, which today sees more video game contracts signed than anywhere else in the world (like MIPCOM in another sector, for example), is the occasion for French companies to measure themselves against the greatest players on the world stage.” commented Pierre Carde, Director of Lyon Game, the non-profit organization organizing the Game Connection. Last December’s Game Connection managed to boast 87 European development studios and 71 of the biggest publishers worldwide, with more than 2700 business meetings. For the 5th anniversary, the Game Connection is giving participants new chances to widen their professional network, by opening its doors to potential new clients and collaborators such as producers, investors, licence holders, access providers, online game companies, and those developing cell phone games, as well as the opportunity to talk to subcontractors, as outsourcing becomes increasingly important. [Lyon Game has previously run its Game Connection events at Game Developers Conference, which is operated by the CMP Game Group, as is Gamasutra.com.]
