The first edition of a brand new game event always conjures a gentle mix of excitement and uncertainty. Stuffing the program with activities while trying to do something different, it’s inspiring to see an event get molded into its final form. But even then, nobody knows what the maiden voyage is going to be like. What we do know is we wouldn’t want to miss it, only to hear about how amazing it was long after the ship sailed back into port.
That’s precisely why FLEGA members* can get various discounts to be at 1UP Conference, the two day game event held in Kortrijk Xpo on February 15 and February 16. Combining a conference of top class industry speakers, with an expo to showcase a varied slice of the best games have to offer, it’s the go-to event for gaming enthusiast and professionals alike. The event will also host the Belgian Game Awards 2019, an exhilarating award ceremony celebrating the best Belgian games and their creators.
The best way to experience any event is to be at the show floor yourself. There’s two packages for exhibitors who want to show what they’re up to at the expo floor and the best thing is both come with discounts and 5 complimentary 2-day expo tickets (valued at € 125)
- NO WORRIES DEAL: don’t worry, be happy. 1UP will take care of everything to set up your 4m² booth in the expo zone. The only thing you need to bring is what you want to show. You get a table and two chairs and your branding will be visible at the stand, website and floor plan. Members can get all this for € 349 (VAT excl.) (instead of € 399).
- DIY PACKAGE: For those handymen that don’t trust anyone but themselves to screw on those bolts, this is what you’re looking for. You can customise your booth any way you want as long as you put it all together yourself. Setting up will be possible from February 13 on and there’s a production team on site to help you out. Members pay € 20/m² (VAT excl.) instead of € 25/m².
The expo will be open on Friday from 12.00 – 21.00 and on Saturday from 10.00 – 19.00. If you’re interested, contact the organisers to set things in motion.

Last but not least: if you still want to get your game in for the Belgian Game Awards 2019, you have until midnight! Join over 30 ambitious game studios who’ve already taken up the gauntlet.
