Thompson.

Paul Thind, SPYR's Director of Mobile Games and Applications states, "GDC, Gamescom and RESPAWN combine to be the largest games industry conferences in the world and it is great that SPYR will have a presence at this year's events.  In particular, I am looking forward to sharing a booth in the Media Lounge at Gamescom with other prominent game publishers, developers and others in the industry.  Our goal is to continue our efforts to get our name out there to the games industry and these conferences will allow us to do just that."

GDC Europe is the "largest professionals-only game industry event in Europe."  GDC Europe is held in conjunction with Gamescom, the leading European consumer show, creating a confluence of industry professionals and allowing for a full week of opportunity for the games industry. http://www.gdceurope.com/

Gamescom "serves as the central platform for the European computer and video game industry. This show brings together the retail, trade and the media providing the ideal setting for the establishment and cultivation of business relationships. The division into business area and entertainment area stands for a concept which will attract and appeal to industry and private visitors equally." http://www.gamescom-cologne.com/gamescom/index-9.php

RESPAWN is an innovative conference and networking event that creates a "relaxed and unconstrained forum where game developers, trade visitors and students can connect and exchange ideas."  RESPAWN is a unique event at which the presentations and panel discussions are held on lecture platforms around the venue instead of in closed rooms, allowing visitors to move fluidly among speakers and discussions. http://www.respawngathering.com/
