Vietnam GameVerse is part of the Vietnam Game Festival that has been hosted since February to boost the Vietnamese game market.

“The size of Vietnam GameVerse is comparable to that of the major game festivals in Korea and China. The event gives domestic companies the opportunity to exchange experience to go global, while attracting big players in the world to invest in Vietnamese games,” said Pham Van Thanh, Director of VTC Game.

Vietnam Game Festival is jointly organized by the Department of Radio, Television and Electronic Information under the Ministry of Information and Communications, VnExpress newspaper and Vietnam Game Union.
