Games Showcase

The Games Showcase is a fundamental part of the International Conference on Business Learning Games. It attracts delegates from the fields of business, education, and HR who are looking for an innovative and disruptive solution to their training needs. Conference delegates will have the opportunity to see the game, watch a demonstration, or even play the games themselves during the Games Showcase. 

 

For games developers, the Games Showcase facilitates personal interaction between the developer/sales representative and potential clients. It is a unique opportunity to demonstrate games to potential clients, making it an effective marketing event to promote business games. It also provides an ideal forum in which to network with fellow games developers and industry experts. 

 

The Games Showcase is open to any game (in any format – non-digital or digital) that enables players to learn something about business, the running of an organization, or a discipline that directly applies to business, management, or work. Games can target executive development, business students at schools or universities, or anybody in the public or private sector work space. Entries can be anything from simulations to games that help people learn things such as strategy, project management, how to give people feedback, teamwork, how to make better decisions, communication skills…the list is almost endless! Games developers may submit more than one game provided that there is a dedicated person present at the Conference to showcase each game.
