There has never been a better time to experience all the incredible games and opportunities that have sent the country of Brazil rocketing to the top of the LATAM games market, further cementing itself as a major industry hub and trendsetter.

“Brazilian studios have been getting a lot of international attention, like the recent investments and partnerships from big players like Epic Games, Fortis Games, and Room8 Studio. These are just the beginning, and we are foreseeing a fantastic BIG Festival this year,” said Eliana Russi, Executive Manager at Brazil Games.

“Without a doubt, this will be the biggest edition of the BIG Festival. In addition to the big names already confirmed at the event, we still have a lot of news to announce in the coming weeks. We couldn’t celebrate the 10th edition of this event in a better way, since it is proving itself more and more as one of the most important in the gaming scene in the world,” said Gustavo Steinberg, Director of BIG Festival.

With support from Brazil Games (the Brazilian Games Export Program), which is carried out by Abragames (Brazilian Games Companies Association) and ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), BIG Festival is Latin America’s most important business hub within the video game industry, strengthening the gaming ecosystem in Brazil. The festival has shown the best games throughout Latin America and the world and has been the platform for major announcements from renowned publishers and industry leaders like Nintendo, Microsoft, Capcom, Newzoo, and many more.

Last year’s event featured some huge announcements, like Capcom’s presentation about Resident Evil that showcased the first game in the franchise to be dubbed in Brazilian Portuguese, and the launch of a new Job Portal, where companies can seek qualified labor and aspiring industry workers can find opportunities for work — an event that witnessed more than 1,000 registered professionals sign up. As a valuable space for newcomers to the industry and veterans alike, for a decade, BIG Festival has been a home for valuable business meetings, awards, press coverage, lectures, and the presence of the world’s leading professionals, as well as publishers and investors.

Last year, more than 20 million people participated in the second incarnation of BIG Digital — the virtual festival established in 2020 in response to the impact of the global pandemic. Online lectures were accessed more than 800,000 times and the event’s website, along with several activities in addition to panels and lectures, received over two million hits during the festival period. Despite the shift to an online format, BIG Festival 2021 achieved record numbers — making it the most successful edition of the event so far. With over 70 hours of bilingual content, in Portuguese and English, the event was broadcast live with more than 300 speakers and 545 companies across 64 countries participating in the event, with more than 5,000 business meetings scheduled. The estimated value of the business from BIG Festival 2021 alone generated over $50 million USD in revenue.

BIG Festival 2022 looks to be no different, with the event bringing together an anticipated 30,000 people to the physical space, in addition to reaching more than one million game enthusiasts, industry professionals, and passionate people via the online broadcasts. There will be over 100 hours of live talks and performances, as well as over 200 select games available to play, both online and in person.
