Huawei is inviting global developers to bring their apps and games to their next stage of growth through AppGallery during its upcoming featured developer sessions at the annual Gaming Developer Conference (GDC) 2021.
GDC is an annual video game conference that focuses on developers, bringing the global community together to exchange ideas, create connections, and learn new skills to advance their craft. The 2021 edition will see the conference go all-digital, allowing the event to be accessible to even more people with online attendance.
Educational sessions to help developers grow and prosper
The two sessions will bring developers through an educational journey on how AppGallery plays a critical role as a key platform to developer’s growth strategy, as well as explore new ways of monetisation strategy for mobile games with Huawei Ads.
“Gaming is going through several fundamental transitions from the evolving demographics of global game players to a transformation of cross-platform gaming experiences,” said Alexandre Salem, Global Gaming Business Development Director. “AppGallery presents unique growth opportunities with its extensive distribution, market reach, and strength in the Chinese market; with Huawei’s combined hardware and software innovation with HarmonyOS and HMS, it delivers an elevated experience that can maximize the value for gaming partners and users.”
In the first session ‘Find your next big win with AppGallery’, Alexandre, as well as Gavin Kinghall Were, Global Head of BD Solutions, Consumer Business Group, Huawei, will be joined by Aurelien Lavaud, Global BD Director, Gameloft, and Maxim Kirilenko, Chief Business Development Officer, Playrix, to discuss their experience incorporating AppGallery as part of their global growth strategy in their game launch and expansion. From launch to marketing support, AppGallery provides valuable resources for developers to help expand their growth opportunities with every new game they release.
“We are excited to meet global game developers and invite everybody to explore the next growth opportunity with AppGallery. We are also very grateful to have our partners Playrix and Gameloft join us to share their journey with AppGallery, and hope more partners will join us to explore more and expand together with AppGallery,” he added.
In the following session ‘HUAWEI Ads: Drive Growth with a New Ad Platform’, Aoife Brodigan, Marketing Director, Huawei Mobile Services, Europe, and Stephane Fournis, Director of Business Development, HUAWEI Ads, Europe, will be introducing the HUAWEI Ads’ new monetisation opportunities, the platform’s unique value and support, as well strategic tips to drive growth through building new revenue streams.
As part of the GDC 2021 sessions, Huawei will also unveil an in-depth case study ebook of its recently concluded inaugural global Game Fest campaign, which saw doubling its daily download figures to over 1.2 million hits during the height of the campaign. The eBook shares in detail the journey and achievements of each of the 13 participating developers, and the support they received to help their games flourish on AppGallery. More details will be made available during the week of GDC 2021.
