Created in July 2006, the company is a spin-off of Lyon Game, which
initially launched Game Connection Europe. Game Connection is a business
convention for the video game industry, taking place in Lyon (France) in
December, San Francisco (California, USA) in March during the Game
Developers Conference, and in Asia. Game Connection provides several
different services, all geared toward the same goals: matchmaking
between developers and publishers, network building and enhancement, and
examination of projects and companies.

Game Connection enables business meetings between professionals in the
video game industry, regarding the creation and the financing of video
games. The event provides game developers a real opportunity to show
their game concepts and their development abilities. It also provides
publishers the chance to maximize their time and meet many developers in
just one place.
