ChinaJoy is by far the largest and most attended videogame exposition that no one has ever heard of. The rise of China means that everything around is also rising: largest internet audience, largest wireless market, largest online gaming population...etc etc.
Sure, a lot of this is hype and market size does not necessarily equal financial revenue as well but the trend is your friend. I still remember attending the very first ChinaJoy in 2002 which was then called GTEC and based in Hong Kong. We would go to a talk and the room would have perhaps 3-5 people per talk from companies I never heard of like Gamania or SeaRainbow or something. Its hard to believe from that small little group 5 years ago has grown into the largest videogame jamboree of all.
When I was in Shanghai I got to ride the MagLtrain which was way cool. Too bad the ride only lasted 8 minutes but 400km/hr on land is wild.
