Last week ChinaJoy (one of the biggest gaming industry events in the country) took place with Fortumo attending as well. In addition to our booth being visited by more than 800 guests, we also held a kick-off party together with our good partner YeahMobi. The party had over 300 people from the gaming industry in attendance - thanks to everyone who dropped by!
While most of our team flew back to Beijing after the event we are also happy to announce that we now have permanent presence in ChinaJoy’s host city Shanghai. You’re welcome to visit our new office located at Shanghai Xujiahui, Room 719, Pine City, 8 DongAn Road, Xuhui at any time.
The biggest change we noticed at ChinaJoy compared to last year is that Chinese developers’ interest towards expanding their business overseas has grown significantly, especially in the Asia Pacific region. This is due to two reasons: user acquisition costs in China are increasing and Chinese games are popular in neighboring countries as well.
We also noticed a bigger number of developers inquiring about Windows Phone. Competition on Android has become extremely fierce and because of this, developers are starting to build apps for Windows Phone because it’s much easier to get your app noticed by end-users.
Both these trends are great to see as Fortumo is able to help developers earn additional revenue in more than a dozen Asian countries and 80 countries globally through carrier billing. Additionally, we are the carrier billing provider for the growing Windows Phone and Windows 8 platforms.
