Focus Malaysia 24 Oct 2019 15:56

Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) today announced the return of LEVEL UP KL, a highly anticipated event that engages game developers, corporates, gamers and eSports communities. Back for its fifth installment, the week-long LEVEL UP KL 2019 will take place from 2 – 10 November at various locations around Kuala Lumpur.

“We are proud to see Malaysia’s game ecosystem grow by leaps and bounds over the years; more so, being one of the primary drivers of this explosive growth. The strong attendance and demand we received from LEVEL UP KL 2018 were a testament to the healthy game market in Malaysia and Southeast Asia that we see today,” said Hasnul Hadi Samsudin, Vice President of Digital Creative Content, MDEC.

He added, “In 2019, we strengthened our efforts to position Malaysia as a regional powerhouse for the games industry through the introduction of the Digital Content Ecosystem (DICE) strategy. LEVEL UP KL 2019 is another effort that validates Malaysia as the preferred destination for the regional game development ecosystem. It is the ‘Not-to-be-missed Event for 2019’ as it will be packed with so many exciting announcements and new content from both globally-recognised Malaysian studios and world-renowned companies!”

For the first time, LEVEL UP KL will feature events that cater to both the industry and general public, namely LEVEL UP KL BIZ and LEVEL UP KL PLAY. Both are complimentary to each other and will bring greater exposure to Malaysia’s constantly expanding game development industry.

Some of the key highlights for both events:

LEVEL UP KL BIZ – Bangsar South

LEVEL UP KL BIZ, taking place from 2 – 8 November 2019, continues the LEVEL UP KL tradition of bringing regional game developers and industry leaders together to interact, learn, and share knowledge. LEVEL UP KL BIZ this year will serve as a platform for key announcements from local and international game developers, expert-led workshops, talks, business connections, awards, game creation and more.

LEVEL UP KL PLAY – Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre

The inaugural LEVEL UP KL PLAY will be held on 9 & 10 November 2019 and has the aim to become Malaysia’s ultimate game conference. We welcome the public to attend this video games extravaganza to experience and celebrate the very best that Malaysia and Southeast Asia games industries have to offer. The two-day games festival will feature various activities, such as game-demos of soon-to-launch AAA and indie titles for both PCs and consoles, Grand Finals for multiple esports leagues, a video game concert, the Who’s Who of video games, meet-and-greet activities, and so much more.

Tickets can be purchased online or onsite during both days.
