Beladcom and Mindark Announce Exclusive Partnership at The World Economic Forum

Amman, Jordan – 26th of October 2011 – Beladcom, a Jordanian game developer that has distinguished itself as a regional pioneer in the industry, recently finalized its exclusive partnership agreement with Swedish software company MindArk for the Middle East, North Africa (MENA) region. The announcement was made at the World Economic Forum, which took place at the Dead Sea, Jordan, from the 21st to the 23 rd of October.
The announcement strengthens the strategic partnership that is expected to have a major impact on
gaming and internet services development in the Middle East, North Africa (MENA) region.
“There are 100 million Arab internet users in the Middle East and North Africa,” commented Beladcom
General Manager Talal Asfoura. “This represents a huge number of potential gamers. With our partners at
MindArk, we will be the first to introduce MMO gaming content specifically developed with this market
in mind. We are highly committed to enriching the world of Arabic online content".
“Beladcom is an innovative company that is on the leading edge of the online revolution sweeping the
MENA region,” remarked MindArk’s Chief Executive Officer, David Simmonds. “There is no doubt that
Beladcom is the ideal partner for bringing MindArk's internet  technology to Arab gaming enthusiasts,
and signing the exclusivity agreement represents an important step towards realizing this goal. The added
prominence of having the official announcement made at the World Economic Forum certainly makes this
a memorable event in our company’s history.”
Beladcom's innovative work in game development in Jordan – a country strategically located in the
MENA region - places the company in a leading role developing Arabic-language gaming services, social
media, and E-commerce solutions. The partnership with MindArk is expected to further enhance the
capabilities of Beladcom’s staff by opening channels of knowledge exchange between the Swedish and
Jordanian teams. As noted at the World Economic Forum, the partnership also brings benefits to Jordan’s
flourishing information and technology sector by providing local Jordanian talent the opportunity to work
on a cutting-edge global project.
