Gilles Langourieux to Keynote GC Asia Conference

Leipzig, Germany – September 4, 2007 – The Organizers of the GC Asia Conference (GCAC, 6-7 September) today announced an additional keynote to the high-quality conference line-up.

In his keynote “Growing a Foreign Company in China”, Gilles Langourieux (CEO, Virtuos Ltd., China) will provide GCAC attendees with exclusive insights on how he lead Virtuos to become one of the world’s largest outsourced services provider in the games industry. GCAC will take place in Singapore, accompanying the first GC Asia  exhibition (September, 6-9, 2007).

Gilles Langourieux founded Virtuos in 2004. He was previously Worldwide Managing Director of ubi.com, Ubisoft’s online division, responsible for the group’s online strategy and businesses. Growing from revenues of 20m$ in 1995 to 800m$ today, Ubisoft built its success on a strategy of internal high-quality / low-cost production studios. Gilles played a key role in this strategy by setting-up and managing the group’s studios in Shanghai and Beijing from 1997 to 2000. He and his team built these studios into the largest in China.

Frank Sliwka, Project Director GCAC, explained, “Coming from a different cultural background and having great experience in the game industry, Gilles Langourieux will provide an interesting perspective on the Chinese market. His keynote is a great contrubition to the conference’s programm, connecting industry specialists from around the globe to share their ideas and strengthen business relations.”

Gilles Langourieux said “I’m honored to have the opportunity to share Virtuos’ experience and vision with game Publishers and Developers gathered at the first GCAC. GCAC taking place in Singapore is another strong signal of the renewed game market potential waiting to be tapped in the region.”
