Gamestart 2016 will have the most number of Exhibitors by far.

"Just a little comparison of how we have grown over the years, so in the first year we have 1 hall,we were like hmm.maybe this will work and we had such response, it was awesome.  Last year we went bigger we had 55 exhibitors, 17,000 visitors.  This year same hall,space but we have alot more exhibitors in,alot more interest from even exhibitors outside of Singapore who are interested to come here and be part of the scene here. So this year we have got more tournaments. we have games deom the indies, from the publishers so please do come down and try them all out." - Elicia Lee
