As one of the industries cornerstones, OverGame’s interest, curiosity and support for Gaming Istanbul began before the first event. As with many rst timer exhibitors, we also weren’t sure what to expect.

GL events Exhibition team, from beginning to the end, through all processes, gave us the chance to work with people, who are just as passionate and professional as we are and made us happy to break new ground. We have much higher hopes, deeper belief and are more excited for the next Gaming Istanbul exhibitions.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Can Aral

The GIST exhibition was an important event that IGG participated in. We have increased our brand recognition for mobile games, met our expectations for meeting with our audience, and had a very productive time at the large exhibition area. During the event, many of the gamers who visited our booth gained special presents and had the chance to test our games. Kindest wishes for an exhibition with more games and more visitors.

Keep up the good work.

In this period of noticeably growing gaming industry, Gaming Istanbul has become a timely, responsive and rational organization. We, as Gpay family, have bene ted from and been greatly impressed by the positioning, quality of presentation and the collaborative attitude of the organizers of the event, in which we participated to engage with gamers. Early planned preparations, attention to details and uninterrupted communication have fairly pleased us, as participants.

We hope that this event, which we see as a step to carry us further as a country, will grow into an expanding brand with a growing fanbase; we thank GL Events team for its contribution and e orts.

Gaming Istanbul, with it’s well planned tournaments, press, conference, B2B and B2C areas was the organization Turkey had needed for a very long time.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Cihan Ağaişi

First of all, we have to say that we are very satis ed with this 4-day-long exhibition. Because the venue was so big, and despite visitor density, it went smoothly. During the event Gaming Istanbul, we saw all the beloved and infamous faces of Turkish gaming media and we can say that it met our expectations. We deeply thank the team who organized this event and helped us in any way whenever they could.

The B2B area was our favorite section of the event. We had the chance to meet with some very important names and presented our ideas to those whom we normally couldn’t have. We got the opportunity to work with some of the international companies and without a doubt, in the upcoming period we will be presented with greater opportunities. We are sure that in 2017, Gaming Istanbul will make much bigger impact. We will be happy to take our place at the event again, in 2017.

G2A.COM con rm that GIST 2016 was an utterly inspiring event.

The moment we inaugurated GIST at its very rst edition, in front of a multinational audience of media, game distributors, in uencers, E-sports teams and game developers, we were sure that we were inaugurating not just an event, but a vision that brings all the gaming community under one roof where the Customer is King!

That’s exactly a key value of G2A, to create a Global Marketplace that is a pro t, that bene ts everyone in the gaming industry.

G2A is looking forward to participate again at GIST 2017.

As an indie developer, one of my rst Professional endeavors was to participate in Gaming Istanbul. It is for me a big step towards professionalism, to be able to arrange meetings with national and international rms. Besides, I believe that working with a team who is always smiling and helpful whenever you need anything will make your presentation perfect. If you are an independent developer and want to take your work to a next level, I strongly suggest that you participate in Gaming Istanbul.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Ali Arda Süer Özçelik

We had a unique experience at Gaming Istanbul, where we had the chance to present our game Unforseen for the rst time. In Turkey, witnessing that indie developers can be a part of an event this scale, makes us hopeful about the future of the industry.

We see GIST as a blessing for the industry so we wait eagerly and curiously to see what following years will bring for us and for visitors. See you next year!

I am over 4 years with Goodgame Studios now and I was responsible for establishing the turkish market for Goodgame Studios in my first year before I start expanding my responsibilities on a global level. The GIST Conference in 2016 was the best gaming event I have ever visited in Turkey. The conference was good, the networking opportunities were tremendous and I enjoyed meeting young talents within the gaming industry.

Overall I must say that this event is going to help the gaming community in Turkey to become one of the most important events in Europe.
