On the matter of mobile games: In response to growing interest of companies from this sector, GIST announced a dedicated Mobile Gaming Area at the upcoming 2020 event.

Official statistics show that more than 21 million people actively play mobile games in Turkey. Some titles like Call of Duty Mobile had a download rate of several million shortly after launch and player numbers remain stable over months. Small and mid-size mobile gaming studios are on the rise as well. The mobile sector in Turkey is much bigger than console and even PC – thus, it is no surprise that two thirds of all local gamers play mobile games”, says Meric Eryürek, Branding and Marketing Communication Manager at GIST.

In just four short years, Gaming Istanbul has grown to almost 100 exhibitors in B2C, B2B and indie areas in 2019. Overall, developers and companies from 20 countries came to showcase their latest games and products to the large crowd of visitors and more than 2.300 trade attendees.

These numbers cement Gaming Istanbul’s position as the largest gaming event in the region, fulfilling its mission statement of “building the gaming bridge of Eurasia”.
