Amsterdam, Netherlands, September 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The new portal offers companies in the games business a unique and cost effective platform to market their individual games, MMOs, game portals, development or publishing skills as well a variety of products and services. Target audience of the freely accessible portal is the international games industry itself as well as third parties, including investors, advertisers, traditional publishers and broadcasters interested in this ever expanding market.
Individual profiles for games, development skills, traffic and services
Gamesindustry.com enables member companies to grow their international business in multiple ways. What sets the portal apart from other directories and online marketplaces is that it offers companies the possibility to create detailed rich media profiles for individual games, services or products they wish to market. For instance, game owners can describe their game and indicate if they are looking for publishers or investors, and game portals can describe the type of games they are looking to source or the affiliate deals they offer.
Active, targeted matchmaking with concrete business opportunities
The portal actively facilitates match making with and within the games industry. Member companies highlight which concrete opportunities they are looking for and receive automatic alerts when other members add relevant information or opportunities. For companies from outside the games industry, the portal also serves as an ideal starting point to find partners, specific skills, knowledge or investment and publishing opportunities. A state-of-the-art search engine and user friendly functionalities make it very easy for visitors to search for, select and contact international partners. Browsing through the portal is free of charge. Only members receive alerts.
