i-Free to sponsor Winter Nights: Mobile Games Conference

St. Petersburg, Russia, 28 January 2013. i-Free has signed up as the “platinum” sponsor of the Winter Nights: Mobile Games Conference, Russia’s only international convention on mobile games, which will take place in St. Petersburg on 8 and 9 February 2013.

As a leading Russian developer of mobile applications, i-Free always lends its support to any meaningful initiatives and events aimed at promoting the mobile games industry in Russia and the rest of the CIS. i-Free is a partner and co-host for the Mobile VAS & Applications Conference, Mobilefest, MDDays and some other high-profile mobile industry forums.

The Winter Nights Conference, which i-Free will be sponsoring this year, is held only for the second time, but already commands much attention. By this date, more than 300 professionals from Russia and other countries have confirmed their attendance. The conference will bring together mobile game market analysts, creators of successful games, online media writers and editors, and potential investors.   

“Mobile games are the fastest-growing industry today,” said Kirill Petrov, Managing Director of i-Free Innovations, speaking about his company’s support for Winter Nights. “Mobile games professionals need a forum where they could share their ideas, concerns and experience. It is our pleasure to support  Winter Nights. We hope it becomes a highlight of the mobile games industry, giving it a new impetus.”   

Winter Nights really does its hand-picking when it comes to speakers. Presentations this year will be made on behalf of Supercell, Rovio, Wooga, Chillingo, Big Fish, FishLabs, Mail.Ru, and a few other market leaders.  

The participants will discuss a wide range of highly important issues at the roundtables: opportunities for app stores and social networks, ways to bring traffic into mobile games, the employment market of the mobile games industry, and much more. The Winter Nights roundtables will be attended by  Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Odnoklassniki.ru, i-Free, InMobi, ChartBoost, and PocketGamer.

The business part of the conference’s first day will end with a big party, hosted by the event organizer, Nevosoft, with the assistance of i-Free.
