Ludicious, the game developer conference and exhibition based in Zürich, has announced the addition of Tobias Kopka to its executive team.
Kopka, known for his previous work at Aruba Events as conference and program director for Quo Vadis in Berlin, as well as Devcom and Respawn in Cologne, will be further developing the quality and scope of the Ludicious conference program, as well as curating the games exhibition.
“I’m more than excited to join the team of Ludicious as artistic and program director,” says Tobias Kopka. “Ludicious is a unique space in the center of Europe, where developers have time to exchange, discuss and strengthen their relationships while fresh from the start of the New Year.”
Kopka, who starts with October, emphasises the outstanding quality content at Ludicious: “We will maintain the very personal tone of the festival, while carefully integrating new ideas within the next years. Key is to focus on excellent content, provide meaningful business relationships and to celebrate game development and production as a challenging art, global culture and multi-dimensional craft”.
The announcement further establishes Ludicious within the international game developer community as an important platform where developers from around the world deepen their knowledge, grow meaningful industry relationships and get access to industry-contacts, via matchmaking, exhibiting and competitions.
The next edition of Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival takes place from 18-21 January. Check out highlights from last spring’s event:
Chris Bergstresser, president and COO of Sega Europe and president of the Ludicious event, sums up: “We are thrilled to have Tobias on board with our festival, which has grown over the last three editions to over 700 delegates to its conference last year. This really deepens what Ludicious can offer the developer community.”
