EGS 2009 continued the show’s reign as the largest and most influential videogame event in Latin America. During its three-day run, EGS 2009 drew consumers, media and business executives in an event that demonstrated the dynamic growth in the Latin American videogame industry.

Exhibitors at EGS 2009 included major videogame companies such as Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Konami, Activision, Blizzard, Sega, Warner Brothers Interactive, THQ and Disney Interactive Studios. Consumers and journalists in attendance were treated to demonstrations of hundreds of titles, including dozens of pre-release games. Among the high-profile games on display at EGS 2009 were Dante’s Inferno and Brutal Legend from Electronic Arts, DJ Hero from Activision, ProEvolution Soccer 2010 from Konami, and Bayonetta from Sega.

“EGS 2009 once again illustrated the continued growth of the Latin American videogame industry,” said Jorge Lizarraga, CEO of the show-organizing company Oelli. “As the Latin American market continues to expand, the importance of networking and developing strong relationships with consumers expands as well. EGS and its sister show, EGS Business, have proven to be essential to the process of growing and strengthening the industry.”
