On behalf of the GAMA Board of Directors, the GAMA Retail Division, and the GAMA staff, we want to thank all of our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors for another successful GAMA Trade Show! The GAMA Trade Show continues to be the largest and most personal event in the social game market. It is a closed trade show only for members of GAMA  and is one of the finest annual events for the hobby channel.

Overall attendance grew by 8.5 % with 1,461 attendees. Exhibit hall space grew by 18 booths and the programming schedule was once again expanded.The exhibit hall had a great vibe and provided a great chance for networking and establishing new business contacts. This is always important and very exciting for our members and attendees.

  • The Premier Presentations were well attended, with several companies hosting over a hundred attendees.
  • The Manufacturer’s track in its third year had 69 people connecting with resources, meeting and learning from experienced manufacturers.
  • The Game Designer Track was well received once again and the Game On event was popular with both designers and attendees. We had over 300 attendees at this first time event!
