Web Summit is the largest technology conference in Europe, held annually since 2009 in Lisbon. Abragames sees this event as an excellent opportunity to promote connections between Brazilian companies and the international market.
ApexBrasil, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE) and the Embassy of Brazil in Lisbon, in collaboration with SEBRAE and SERPRO (Federal Data Processing Service), and with the support of other Brazilian entities, will be promoting the Internationalization Mission for Web Summit from November 12 to 17, 2023. The goal is to assist innovative Brazilian companies with the potential to do business in Portugal or Europe.
The event features over 1,000 speakers, 2,300 startups, 1,000 investors, and approximately 160 countries will be represented with their delegations.

RESEARCH: NATIONAL GAME INDUSTRY
Participating in the Brazilian Game Industry Survey is a fundamental step for the growth and strengthening of the game development sector in Brazil. The survey not only provides a comprehensive overview of the national game market but also offers valuable insights into the trends, challenges, and opportunities that shape the gaming industry. By sharing their experiences and information, developers and studios contribute to the construction of a solid data foundation that supports public policies, attracts investments, and promotes visibility for our creative and innovative landscape.
To fully grasp the importance of participating in the Brazilian Game Industry Survey, we can look at the research conducted last year, which shed light on the remarkable growth of the gaming industry in Brazil on an international level. The results of that study not only showcased the economic expansion of the sector but also its innovative potential and its increasing influence in the global gaming market.
