Since 2012, the four independent trade associations for publishers and distributors of computer and video game entertainment in the Nordic region (Swedish MDTS, Danish MUF, Finnish FIGMA and Norwegian NSM) have worked very closely together within the Association for the Nordic Game Industry (ANGI) – a pan-Nordic umbrella organisation.
On 1 January these national organisations formally dissolved to join a new, leaner ANGI – a centralised organisation representing game publishers and distributors across the Nordic region.
“This new Nordic set-up is established to match the future needs of the industry and to secure an optimal financial foundation for ANGI with a relevant agenda for the future,” explains ANGI chairman John Eidelmann.
ANGI will continue to develop and drive Nordic regional games industry strategy as well as execute plans and engage government, media and consumers at the national level.
“It is decisive to be prepared and to adjust when times are good – according to the newest research the global market for video games is set to jump by almost ten percent this year,” adds Eidelmann. “We’re here to help our members have the right economic, political and social environment needed for this expanding industry to continue to thrive.”
