La Caravane en région
The dates and location of the 2024 edition of La Caravane entrepreneuriale will be announced in March.
Discover The Caravan 2023 in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean !
On May 4, 2023, La Caravane made a stop in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean!
This edition brought together over 40 independent studios and gave them the opportunity to meet XBOX-Game pass, and take part in a weekend of networking, training and discovery of the local video game ecosystem.
Including a stop in Quebec City for the Catapulte finals, in collaboration with Quebec EPIX, the studios met with experts in commercialization, financing and marketing. Alongside industry veterans Jason Della Rocca and Pierre Moisan, and with the presence of XBOX – Game Pass, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, they improved their pitches and developed business opportunities during professional exchanges in a close-knit environment.
A kiosk fair was held at La Pulperie in Chicoutimi to introduce the general public and local students to the studios, their game projects and the industry’s future professions.
The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean Caravan was presented by La Guilde du jeu vidéo du Québec, Ubisoft and Québec EPIX, in partnership with CAE, Investissement Québec International, SYNTHÈSE, Promotion Saguenay, L’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Le Gouvernement du Québec, Affaires Mondiales Canada and Xsolla.
