Kuala Lumpur, 27-29th April 2018 – The three day event was jam packed with activities and talks by experts in their fields sharing tips, knowledge and hacks on how they managed to build and grow their career & business in the digital world.

One of the speakers include video games designer Wan Hazmer Wan Abd Halim, who became one of the most popular video game designers for Final Fantasy XV, working with the Japanese giant video game developer, Square Enix.  Heralded as a local hero in the games scene, Wan Hazmer shared his experience in working with a world-class game developer and his determination to develop a local video game company, equivalent to Square Enix.

Now back in Malaysia for good, Wan Hazmer has set up his own video game developer company in partnership with MDEC and Level Up Inc.
