This “French-South-African Video Game meetups” project is a continuation of the first meetings organized in 2022 by the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS) and Business France, with the support of the French Institute in Paris.
The objective of these meetings is to allow companies to better understand the South African and international gaming market, to stimulate opportunities on the continent, and to work with South African partners on the structuring of their ecosystem, for example through partnership agreements between incubators. The meetings revolve around pitching/matchmaking sessions, dedicated conferences, site visits, B-to-B meetings, and dedicated sessions within Africa Games Week, and the Playtopia festival.
The first edition aroused strong interest from French participants and South African partners and brought to light numerous cooperation and business opportunities. This second edition therefore aims to amplify and sustain our action in this area, based on the assessment carried out after the 2022 meetings. It also aims to support independent creation by relying on the Playtopia festival, in addition to Africa Games Week.
Date of Events: 28th November 2023 – 9th December 2023
Cape Town – Johannesburg- Cape Town
We will require the agency to ensure the realization of transportation (international and domestic flights, local transportation), hosting reservation, some catering, and communication- based on a programme of meetings and events managed by the IFAS project team.
