Shanghai WN Connect, held in conjunction with ChinaJoy 2023, became a record attendance

Last week, WN Connect Shanghai`23 took place. We share its results and the first results of the ChinaJoy, Asia’s largest exhibition and conference of digital entertainment, held there in Shanghai.

Held on July 27, WN Connect became the fifth Chinese event of WN Media Group. Earlier, the company held one large conference and three chamber “connections” in China — two in Shenzhen and one in Beijing.

The current event, focused like other events of the WN Connect format primarily on the local business community, was attended by a record number of participants – 273 people (previously, similar events in China gathered no more than 150 guests).

Distribution of guests by specialty

Among its participants were employees of Perfect World, iDreamSky, Baidu, Yoozoo, Bilibili, Tencent, Scopely, NetEase, 505 Games, Dotemu, Yodo1, MY.GAMES, Lilith Games and 176 other companies. Most of the companies represented (49%) are directly game development studios. By the way, the event was sponsored by PagSeguro and Algorithix.

Distribution of participating companies by specialization (important: one company may have several specializations)

WN Connect Shanghai`23 was also the first event held as part of an official partnership between WN Media Group and China’s largest gaming event ChinaJoy. Both companies even signed a paper on mutual cooperation a few days before the event.

ChinaJoy itself was held this time from July 28 to July 31. For four days, the exhibition, where more than 500 companies from 22 countries of the world presented their products, was visited by about 338 thousand people.
