The World's Only Conference Series Dedicated Entirely to Game Quality Comes to APAC
The Leading Event for:
QA | Localization | Producers | Developers | Studio & Publisher Exec
As we celebrate the fifth year of the European and North American Game QA and Localization Forums, Gaming IQ are thrilled to announce the inaugural APAC meeting in this increasingly essential series.
The Game QA & Localization Forums provide a much-needed and unique platform for games professionals and leaders to get together to discuss these critical, but niche, topics in a relaxed and intimate environment. Industry events these days are commonly either too broad to have discussions that get to the heart of the issue, or so huge that getting any significant facetime with peers is very difficult between all the running around and meetings. That's why the #GameQALoc forums are so popular - with just the right size to promote valuable discussions, just the right mix of seniority and roles to enable unrivalled networking, and just the right topics to allow for both holistic/strategic discussions and detailed practical improvements for our everyday workflows and challenges.
With the increased proliferation of game-capable devices, more casual gamers and increasingly demanding consumers, quality assurance and localization have never been more important in the gaming industry. Whether it be for console, PC, mobile, online or social, the playability and game experience can now define a game’s success - or failure. Large developers may take a hit in revenue and/or reputation, but for small-to-mid-sized studios it can be make or break.
This is the first ever two-day forum entirely dedicated to game QA and localization in the APAC region, both incredibly important communities in the industry yet until now sorely missing their own networking & idea exchange forum. This unique event will play such a crucial role in the gaming industry’s event calendar that even in it’s first year it has secured plenary support from Blizzard, Sony, Wargaming, King, Scopely and many more.
This forum will bring together QA, Localization, Producers and Operations Managers, Directors and VPs from game developers and publishers around the world to discuss some of the key challenges faced on a daily basis. Network with peers from other companies who are in the same boat, and find solutions using your combined knowledge!

What our Attendees are Saying
“We really recommend any of Gaming IQ’s events. Game QA and Loc in Barcelona was absolutely outstanding, such great speakers”
"I firmly believe that this forum will change the face of gaming QA. I think anyone who truly cares about the industry should seek to be a part of positive change within it, and the best way to do that right now on a scale wider than one’s current workplace is to be at this forum and meet like-minded individuals. QA came out of the basement a while ago – let’s get up on the stage!"
"We can all make our industry better with events like this. To share a voice, to listen and explore how and why we do what we do is not just a privilege, it is a necessity"
"Very useful, I’ve taken a variety of notes and ideas from speakers and other attendees during networking breaks for discussion and potential implementation"
"Excellent overall, I really enjoyed networking and getting to know the people there as well as take home some useful tips about how different companies run certain processes"
