IDG World Expo announced that it has acquired the Game Marketing Summit from PromaxBDA. IDG World Expo has assumed all responsibilities for the event previously known as MI6, but PromaxBDA will continue to assist with the Games Marketing Summit’s awards process.

“There is no company more appropriate, capable and supportive of the global gaming industry than IDG World Expo and the entire community is excited to see them take this event to the next level,” said PromaxBDA CEO and president Jonathan Block-Verk.

Dates for the next show have yet to be announced, but the one-day event will take place in San Francisco in Spring 2013.
