1UP, a place for game-passionates from Belgium and beyond:
In 2018, Cronos Interactive made a bet to host a major game convention here in Belgium. The event would attract both professionals and a large audience. A few months later, 1UP opened in February 2019 during two days at Kortrijk XPO.
The first edition counted around 3,000 visitors, 17 speakers and 50 booths over 9,000 m². 1UP Expo gathered veteran publishers and indie studios, such as Ubisoft, Nintendo, Bandai Namco, Larian Studios, Fishing Cactus and many more to showcase their latest titles.
Experts of the industry shared their experience during 1UP Conference, like Rami Ismail (Vlambeer), Kate Edwards (Geogrify), Sjoerd de Jong & Andreas Suika (Unreal), Dave Voyles (Microsoft), Anya Combs (Kickstarter)...
The Belgian Game Awards, hosted by William Boeva and Eefje Depoortere, recognized outstanding projects, including Flotsam, Pixel Picasso, Space Pirate Trainer, Divinity: Original Sin 2 and more. List of the winners available here.
