India is one of the world’s biggest emerging markets with a population of more than one billion people. And now it’s set to form its first-ever independent games trade body.
Traditionally such duties have been managed by NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Services Companies), India’s IT trade association. The organisation had expanded into other sectors such as animation and games, but is now refocusing on its core objectives.
The move led to the NASSCOM Game Developer Conference, which has been running for 10 years now, this year being rebranded to the India Game Developer Conference.
