The summer break is over and Nordic Game is ramping up again for an exciting fall season!
Our main focus is of course NG20+ on 25-27 November. Will this fall’s event be a physical conference, held in Malmö like in the good old days? Well, there’s still a chance that some of us will actually be able to meet in person come November, but with Swedish pandemic restrictions still in force, it’s still too early to confirm.
Will NG20+ be online then? Most certainly YES! Already confirmed and in the making, the NG20+ will be a fully-fledged online event, building on the great success of our premiere online conference, NG20 last spring.
Last May, the Nordic and global industry gathered virtually for three days at our first entirely online Nordic Game conference. Some quick stats: 1371 registered attendees from 55 different countries and 865 different companies attended, resulting in 2266 confirmed meetings in the MeetToMatch system, more than 600 people engaging in the NG20 Discord channel’s plethora of social happenings, and 6014 views of the NG20 live streamed speaker program both during and just after NG20.
We are quite proud of these results, but recognise that we would never have been able to pull off such a successful online event without the support of the global industry, our sponsors and partners, friends and attendees. A BIG thank you to all of you!
Also an extra special thanks to the many NG20 participants who answered our questionnaire following the event. We will use this very valuable info in our efforts to make NG20+ superior in every way. We also promised award three free NG20+ passes in a draw among the questionnaire respondents, and here are the lucky winners:
María Clara Cattaneo Esnaola
Warm congrats and thank you again! All winners will be contacted directly.
Lastly, and to end with a bit of a self-congratulation, please allow us to share some of the responses we received from NG20 participants in our questionnaire. We hope this will encourage you all to keep on supporting Nordic Game and our efforts to serve the games industry community 🙂
