A successful event may have been of interest to those with commercial property in Dubai.

The Dubai International Character and Licensing Fair – Character Dubai and the Dubai World Game Expo (DWGE) drew to a close yesterday (October 28th).

It is the only event of its kind in the Middle East, which facilitates the bringing together of content creators, animation producers, comics and other associations, with some business trading taking part at the event itself.

Abdul Salam Al Madani, president of Index, said: "The success achieved at the second edition of Character Dubai and Game Expo was beyond expectations and we are delighted by the number and quality of participants and visitors."

The company representative was eager to thank those who took part as contributing to make it such a success story. It received over 10,000 visitors representing various different companies.

Special thanks were given in particular for the government's support, alongside press, visitors and the private sector.

DWGE is sponsored by Crytek, One Card and Epic Games. Epic Games is currently running the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal competition with Intel.
