Yes, there was much joy at the Pocket Gamer ChinaJoy 2013 party
Maybe a couple, but we've scratched another big name from our to-do list with our first networking drinks party at the ChinaJoy conference in Shanghai.
Together with local organisers Umeng - providing app analytics for Chinese developers - and cloud services company Ucloud, we took over Kathleen's 5, the bar at the top of the Shanghai Art Gallery.
As usual, hundreds of people arrived, queued for a bit and then had the opportunity to wear funny hats, get their picture taken, and tackle some well-deserved drinks after a day of conferencing, while networking furiously with the everyone from major CEOs and SVPs to the young guns who are kickstarting the next hot gaming start up.
You can see our full set of photos via Facebook here, and a quick video below.
