Overview: The 2020 was the year that changed everything - especially gaming events. Surpassingly, you can still find new business partners and sign profitable regional distribution deals, and thanks to digital-only events - it is cheaper than ever! Obviously, there is a new challenge to take - it requires a much different approach. Marcin Makaj - an indie game developer, a lawyer, and an economist in one person shares an updated version of his highly acclaimed lecture from Game Developers Conference 2020 - "Regional Distribution Deals: A Rescue for Indie Game Developers". Learn how to use the opportunities of digital-only events, when you should rethink your former negotiation tactics, and why online meetings have to be tailored differently.
