Nordic Game is very much about knowledge and business, but an important part of the experience is the wealth of opportunities available to meet, greet and mingle with people from the industry.
NG17 will offer a long list of networking events, and the first one has already been announced:
IGDA Finland Party
Once again IGDA Finland will host a mixer with beer, wine, music and good company on the first conference day. Read more here.
Here’s last May’s list of “places to go” for folks to be social at Nordic Game 🙂
Nordic Game Arcade
Folks hung-out in the arcade bar and played weird arcade games on even weirder machines. Attendees could also test the eight games nominated for the 2016 Indie Sensation Award and vote for their favorite(s).
Nordic Board Game Lounge (Unreal Theater Foyer)
Board games are booming! This year’s Nordic Game is premiering the Nordic Game Board Game Lounge – a calm oasis where you can chill out during the conference and play some of the best and most inspiring board games now available.
Video game makers can learn much from the world of board games, so drop by to experience new, inspiring game mechanics, exciting game experiences and perhaps even meet and make new game friends.
The Nordic Board Game Lounge is organised by students from the game design program at Denmark’s Vallekilde Folk High School.
Diversi Mixer at NG16
A “meet and greet” with folks from Diversi in the Nordic Game Arcade.
Nordic Game Awards 2016
A highlight of the Nordic Game conference, last May’s award show took place in the Unreal Theatre, the main auditorium of Slagthuset, sponsored by our good friends at Epic Games.
Don’t forget to eat! Lunch was served for all delegates each conference day in the Dining Hall.
Mingle and refreshments at the NG Expo Hall Bar 🙂
Nordic Game Gala Dinner
The annual Gala Dinner is for all conference participants. Great food, drinks and conversation are on the agenda, kindly sponsored in 2016 by Crytek, Berlin Brandenburg and Wooga.
Party time! We have much to celebrate every year, so last May we turned Slagthuset into a party paradise complete with bars, marioke, dancing, cheering and mingle 🙂 Bucket loads of Nordic fun, sponsored in 2016 by ever Epic Games.
Nordic Game 2016 Indie Day culminated with a final after-party. Full of games, fun and surprises, and sponsored last May by our friends at Unity.
