 “Diversified Game Platforms x Globalized Games = Road to Success”  
  (tentative title)

In addition to family game consoles and PCs, platforms such as
smartphone and cloud which assume the network connection are
spreading worldwide. Increasingly, game companies are faced to
select to which platform they should pour their resources. 

In particular, in building a business which assumes the global
implementation, the markets such as smartphones and clouds are
gaining an important position, because direct reactions can be
obtained in those markets.

We will invite industry’s top corporate executives who have
succeeded in the gaming markets for smartphones both in Japan
